Q.One Acre No Lawn

Zone 27834 | unclepete added on May 9, 2024 | Answered

Hi, I have a one acre residential lot and don’t want a lawn. That being said I would like to have drought resistant ground covers and flowering plants. My question is can I do this from seed, because the cost of buying plants is going to be beyond my budget. I also understand that at this point I have to wait until fall to plant whatever is chosen. Please advise. Thank you.

Sure! Depending on what you are planting. It will take longer from seed, and some plants have lower germination rates, so going from seed is usually not the choice method. It can be done, though.
