GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Many people enjoy their lawns and do not want any alternative gardens or mulch, but they also love bees so there is a great idea for next spring. Plant yourself a bee lawn!
Lawns are traditionally ornamental or recreations plantings of turfgrass that are mowed and managed to achieve a desired aesthetic.
A flowering lawn differs from a traditional lawn in having flowering plants as well as turfgrasses. Benefits of flowering lawn include: increased lawn resilience to environmental pressures, natural diversity that benefits bees and other pollinators and insects, and the beauty of the flowers themselves.
