I’m filing this under – Things I Wish I Had Done Last Fall. I love me a good flowery mead and given that I have a dead front lawn, (soon to be revived this spring)- this would have been all the easier.
I never thought about how much more effective it would be to roll back the lawn to achieve this effect. No, I rather daftly dug little individual holes with a bulb planter. Duh….So much simpler this way.
Now I am all inspired for this coming fall….or perhaps even this spring before the new lawn even takes hold!
I’m curious — are you the type of person who loves this look (the sort of weedy lawn) or would you view this as a complete denuding of grassy perfection? I’m really curious — because there truly is two sides to this in garden world…and none is more right…but I find that when I meet a new client, this is a huge indicator of what kind of landscape they will ultimately want and be happy with.
