Planting bulbs on grit sanded area

I'm about to plant, somewhat belatedly I know, a lot of bulbs (Crocus, Hyacinth, Tulips, Snowdrops) but half of the area, where I want to plant these, has had loads of paving flags on it & I've taken these up, in an effort to make a mini-meadow, along with the other half, that was part of the lawn. Do you think it'll be OK to just plant the bulbs without any 'new surfacing' (lawn, for example) and let nature take it's course? Or do you think it might look a little incongruous with half as former lawn, and half as grit sand-covered area, or will nature gradually mask these? I'd appreciate your advice on this.
You could let the bulbs do their thing, then , after they've died down sow some grass seed on top?
