What is a Bee Lawn?
Bee lawns are made of a tight mix of grasses and low-growing perennials that can be used and treated much like a regular lawn but also offer high-quality nutrition to pollinators.
Why should I plant a Bee Lawn?
Pollinator populations have been declining in part due to habitat loss, pesticide use, and parasitic mites. Pollinators play essential roles in our ecosystems and are responsible for one-third of the food on our plates! Introducing flowering plants into a lawn will help them. Besides this, you are also increasing your yard’s resilience; your yard will have healthier soil and need less fertilizing.
Where do you plant a Bee Lawn?
Turf areas that are not heavily used for recreational purposes or that are primarily aesthetic are great locations. Examples include boulevards, steep or challenging slopes, and right of ways or easements.
