Types of Meadowmat wildflower turf

Meadowmat Varieties

There are wild flowers to suit every situation and at Meadowmat we've created several different mixes of wildflowers so that you can find the right one for your needs.

Perhaps you want to create a traditional wildflower meadow, or a cottage garden-like border. Maybe you want to help support wild birds or you just want to brighten up that bit under the trees where it tends to be a bit shady at times. Take a look at our Meadowmat varieties, compare and contrast the products for yourself, and if you need any help deciding, drop us an email with pictures of your garden and we'll do our best to help.

Every variety of Meadowmat is grown in the same way and laid just like grass turf. The main differences between them is the plants that are growing in the sward, and in one case, the time of year that they are cut back. All types of Meadowmat grow best in low fertility soil.
