Beauty Beyond Belief Low Maintenance Grass + Wildflower

This low-growing grass and wildflower meadow mixture is shade and drought tolerant with low water requirements and intended for those areas that require low maintenance, such as transition areas in backyard lawns, parks, ditch banks, road cuts, berms or golf course roughs. Mature height is 6-12″ and the color stays green through late fall. This can be mowed twice a year, if desired, at 4-6″. The wildflowers include annual and perennial species. The annuals will be most showy the first year with the perennials becoming established to bloom the following years. A seed mixture of annuals may be scattered in the following years to maintain the vivid colors.

General Grass Seeding Tips:

  • Timing: Seed in the Spring or Fall when the soil temperature is 50 to 80 degrees
  • Preparation: Ensure adequate drainage of your site. Cultivate 4-6 inches with topsoil. Incorporation of a starter fertilizer will help provide proper nutrients for early growth. Keep seed bed firm, not fluffy.
  • Seeding: Using a drop spreader or a broadcast spreader, spread half the seed lengthwise over your site, then the other half crosswise over your site. A recommended seeding rate is listed on the seed tag.
  • Moisture: To help promote good seed germination, keep the newly seeded area moist at all times.
  • Maintenance: Mow for the first time when the grass is approx. 3-4 inches tall. Do not cut below 1.5 inches. A good fertilizer program will promote better disease control and encourage uniform grass growth.
  • Overseeding: To renovate an established lawn, mow very closely and rake deeply. Spread 1/2″ to 3/4″ of sand or topsoil over the area and overseed with chosen seed mix. Spring or Fall are excellent times for overseeding.
