Native Meadow Benefits

Native meadows are increasingly popular for their ecological benefits and lower maintenance requirements. The biodiversity aspects are typically composed of a diverse range of indigenous plants and local wildlife, including pollinators and birds and are more resilient to pests and diseases and require less maintenance, no pesticides, no fertilizers, and no irrigation after establishment
