How hard is it to get a lush wildflower garden?

I have a fairly steep fill slope along our road frontage and it makes me nervous watching my husband mow it. We've talked about terracing the slope, but that is a project for a different year. (I want to focus on landscaping around our house this year.) I'm debating on planting the slope with wildflowers. Sowing seed sounds easy enough, but will that really give me a lush wildflower garden as seen in these pictures? If I can get flowers to grow nice and lush like this without obvious weeds popping through, I will skip the terracing and mark a project off my to-do list. :) Are the photos below representative of what an average DIYer can do?
