Hi there! First time poster, long time lurker. We are planning a mini-meadow in our front yard. We live in a rural area and we have a little old house situated close to somewhat busy road. The idea is to wipe out the lawn and plant perennials flanking a path close the house, with a swath of little bluestem over most of the yard and all along the road frontage. The hope is that the grass will create a bit of a boundary for the house.
The area of little bluestem would be about 500 sq ft. and I am hoping you might give some advice to a grass novice on the best method for planting when spring comes. Would seeds be best? plugs? I keep finding instructions/tips for full meadow planting, but can't seem to find anything for smaller areas.
