Ok so meadows are all the rage, we know. They fit the bill of being mythically naturally beautiful without human attention or need--effortless beauty is most people's favorite kind. The truth is, meadows found in nature have taken a very long time to look as beautiful as they do. Man-made or artificial meadows take a lot of work, and they do not happen overnight, over months or even a year. They take many years, and preparing the soil by roto-tilling the soil to broadcast seeds is crucial. But meadows don't need great soil, or even good soil. They actually thrive in really poor soils that are dry, clayey with poor nutrient content (fewer weeds), and yes, they don't need to be watered, but they do need at least 4 hours of sunlight per day. Here I offer a link to a NYT article on meadows and also a site that does offer a good hearty mix with 18 different plants that are common to meadows. But I'll be honest, do not expect miracles with a shake of this packet on your lawn. Sadly, it doesn't work that way, but then again if you think about it most amazing things take some work to make, don't they?
