Reducing grass in Wildflower area
So I’ve an area at the end of the garden we’ve devoted to wildflowers. Unfortunately, whilst we did have a decent number of wildflowers this year (1st year) the area is being totally taken over by grass.
I’m mowing it now as short as it will go and will be sowing some yellow rattle throughout but I’m worried the grass will hinder it from taking.
Does anyone have any suggestions for how to reduce the grass over winter without using chemicals as there will be lots of wildflowers seeds down from this year.
I was wondering about covering the area with tarpaulin for a couple of months in the hope of killing the grass but leaving the seeds undamaged, may that work?
