To maintain your Native Prairie, leave un-mowed throughout the growing season. Once flowers have completed flowering. you may mow prairie if desired. Once established, minimal watering is needed (once a month). If watered more frequently, the grass will grow more rapidly and smother the flowers in the mix.
The Native Prairie mix looks its best with at least 4 hours of direct sunlight per day. If it gets less than 4 hours, the flowers do not thrive.
