Converting pipeline easement to wildflower meadow?
I live adjacent to a two acre gas pipeline easement, primarily covered in some kind of coarse-bladed grass. The owners are fine with me mowing the lot (which I do regularly now), but tilling would be out of the question. They'll mow once a year no matter what to prevent woody matter from growing.
I've been wondering if I could convert the lot to a wildflower meadow with well-timed mowing (I can set my blade up to 4") and a lot of wildflower seed. I realize that I would have a very low seed conversion rate, but if I kept at it year after year would I have a chance of success?
