fleur de lawn


I read about this idea years ago in a seed catalog and think it is is so, so lovely! Instead of a regular lawn, plant a Fleur de Lawn! It's grass seed mixed with strawberry clover, sweet alyssum, and wild english daisies.

  1. Bookmarking this for someday when I have a yard. It would be wonderful for children too. I can just imagine my little girl playing in it and picking flowers. She always tells me she wants to walk in “tall grass”. Love this.

  2. Amberdawn: We have these planted all over Portland and I don’t think the grass ever gets too terribly tall but if it did, I think that’s sort of the beauty of it. After the flowers fade, you could mow it.

  3. I think there are few things sadder looking than a lawn manicured into so-called perfection. Here’s to more wildflowers on lawns everywhere!
