Georgia’s highways can be more beautiful, and the drive more enjoyable, when the roadside is
painted in colorful wildflowers. But besides the beauty of nature, these meadows offer many benefits over common turf grass.
These meadows attract many pollinators which are important for our food supply. One out of every three bites you eat are made possible by busy bees, butterflies and birds that rely on flowers and plants as their food source. Georgia’s family farms need healthy pollinators to produce fresh fruits and vegetables.
Pollinator meadows also require less maintenance and less mowing than turf grass.
