Eco lawn

Asked January 18, 2021, 4:05 PM EST

I planted an eco lawn from osu in the fall and now a bunch of young dandelions are coming up. Is this a part of my eco lawn or are the seeds blowing in from a neighboring yard?

Thank you!

Dandelions are a perennial, deep-rooted plant that wouldn’t be part of an eco-lawn mix that I’m aware of. OSU has worked to develop some eco lawn seed mixes that are available commercially, so confirm the contents of seed mix with the seller.
