  • Source of food for caterpillars and therefore a vital part of butterfly and moth life cycles.
  • Autumn seed heads and a ready supply of insects and larvae for birds.

What is Meadowmat?

If you’re not familiar with Meadowmat, it’s an innovative landscaping material that allows you to establish dense planting very quickly. More reliable than seeding and less time consuming than plugplanting, Meadowmat can only be described as a flower garden on a roll. It’s installed and established just like grass turf but needs less ongoing maintenance than a lawn.

Maintaining Traditional Meadowmat requires a different approach to any other type of gardening. Fertilisers and pesticides can stay in the shed – you won’t be needing those. Neither will you need your lawn mower. Meadowmat can be left to grow unchecked between March and August. At the end of summer it is cut back to a height of 10 – 15 cm and all vegetation is removed. Mow once or twice in autumn to remove excess growth and leave over winter and your Traditional Meadowmat will naturally start growing when the soils warm up in spring.

Key Points

  • The majority of plant species in Traditional Meadowmat are perennial. That means that if they are happy in your garden they will grow back year after year.
  • Flowering Time: May – July (depending on local weather conditions).
  • Meadowmat is mown before despatch to minimise damage to plants. It will not be in flower when it is delivered.
  • For flowers in its first season, install Traditional Meadowmat before the end of march to allow plants to establish.
  • A standard roll of Traditional Meadowmat covers 1 square metre of prepared soil and weights up to 25Kg. We recommend having two people to install it.
  • The balance of plant species is affected by soil type, management, pollinator populations and local climatic conditions. Your Traditional Meadowmat will change appearance from year to year, which is one of the reasons we love it so much.
