Am I off base with this 'natural' plan?
Recently moved onto a 5 acre lot that is a majority old pasture and a filled in valley(?) . My backyard looks like it is all grass( clay and rocky soil) and I'd like to establish some more tall interest. I am limited by my neighbors property (they mow). I'd like to mow my grass, leaving two large swathes of pasture/grass growing off the treelines located along the sides of my property. I'm hoping native red cedar and redbuds will begin to grow (I've seen seedlings in the grass.) Will this work? Can I add other wildflowers to the soil? I've picked some red cedar berries...can I plant those in those areas?
