Don’t weed, fertilize and aerate. Get comfortable with a less uniform lawn and let it grow lovelier by planting flowers you can mow like Self Heal or drought-resistant Creeping Thyme. First, cut the yard quite short to let the light get down to the surface, then spread some carefully chosen flower seeds and keep the ground moist for a few days. The University of Minnesota extension service, linked below, will tell you which flowers grow best where you live. Your lawn can be prettier, more sustainable and much more welcoming to important pollinators, including honey bees.
