Bee Turf is a lawn replacement blended from mixed clovers and low-growing wildflowers that was developed by West Coast Seeds in partnership with the City of Richmond, BC. It is intended to replace lawn in urban settings in order to reduce maintenance costs and increase habitat and forage for pollinators. This blend requires less water, less fertilizer, and less mowing than conventional lawn grasses. It has better resistance to weeds and is unattractive to chafer beetles. Monthly mowing will keep it trim and tidy: Mow to 5" tall for a natural pasture look, with lots of flowers, or mow to 2½ to 3" for a manicured lawn appearance. To increase the number of flowers, just mix in some of our Alternative Lawn Wildflower Blend.
Like any other type of seed, this product should be planted into prepared soil. Sowing over existing lawn rarely works, as thatch prevents the seeds from coming in direct contact with soil.
