Suppose you're in this situation:
You had a bad lawn. Perhaps the developers removed your good soil. You fixed your lawn, and also added some nematodes and milky spore. Now its all healthy grass.. You won't have to kill weeds ever again. The only upkeep will be to mow high and add lime, fertilizer, occasional micro-nutrients, and possibly fine charcoal.
You're going to add flowers, such as clover.
1. Maintain lawn functions, such as abrasion and erosion control.
2. provide a balanced diet
3. provide nectar flows that are fairly even throughout the season (flowers that bloom at different times)
1. What time of year to plant?
2. Which flowers?
3. quantity and ratio? This could be a ratio of different seeds by mass.
Tell us the brand and quality of any seed you bought.
