Backyard Prairie

Beautify your backyard and eliminate the hassle of mowing by planting prairie. Prairie brings the natural appeal of prairie grass and wildflowers right to your backyard. Prairie also creates a wildlife refuge by attracting songbirds, butterflies, and wildlife. Allow us to guide you through our special process to replace your high maintenance grass with Iowa’s natural heritage – prairie. Prairie establishment involves killing existing stands of grasses and weeds, a light tilling of the soil, planting of the native seeds, and mowing emerging weeds. From removal of stubborn grass to the establishment of new prairie, we will carefully guide you through each phase of reshaping your backyard.
