Ever consider letting a hidden corner of your yard grow to full height and mow it in stages in late summer? Grass, weeds and everything else, just leave it be?
It's becomes a mini meadow. Certain bird, reptile, insect, mammals and other species thrive in these conditions.
Better still, show off your hard work with a native plant meadow or wildflower garden. Pollinators really appreciate it! Ehspest purchases our seed mix every year from the wonderfully helpful folks at Ernst Seed in PA.
I'm very excited to renovate a portion of my lawn this spring with native grasses and wildflowers.
Start planning now and be the envy of the neighborhood.
