I plan to replace my grass with a low growing flowering meadow. There are several commercial seed mixes available but I want to combine three or four varieties of clover (red pink and white). The clover will supply nitrogen and having different varieties will allow them to survive all year round. I am considering adding dwarf yarrow, baby blue eyes (very popular in England but might not fair well in full sun) and either corsican mint or globe
gilia_capitata-globe gilia globe gilia might be too tall.
nemophila_menziesii-baby blue eyes baby blue eyes --- nemophilia-menziesii
I want to find red, purple and white clover as the nitrogen fixing base for the new lawn carpet .I shopped on line and found some wholesale sites but need more research
Please see my “before photos and general plan:
