Benefits of a meadow lawn. The meadow lawn has a much lower maintenance requirement than both a conventional lawn or a wildflower meadow. Its requirements are flexible, and you don’t need to have a strict mowing regime.Because of the mixture of natural plants, the meadow lawn supports a wide range of beneficial insects that will help with pest control in other areas of the garden and benefit the local fauna.As opposed to a wildflower meadow, the meadow lawn gives color and interest through all periods of the year as the differing species of native plants flower, but also retains a viable lawn that will take moderate foot traffic and children’s games.The mixture of native British spring-flowering wildflowers shown here — including primroses, Forget-me-nots and daisies — grow where they are happiest and spread where they want, but there is control; the grass is trimmed throughout the growing season. Primroses (Primula vulgaris) and their sister the cowslip (Primula veris) will happily grow in a meadow lawn as long as any mowing is held until flowering has finished.
