I ended up with a highly drought tolerant patchwork quilt.

    It may be easier to cover all the weeds with cardboard and then put the soil on top.

    Wow. your mowable meadow is looking great. I'm going to try it again next spring here in south Florida when the rain season begins. I had put down some seeds too late and the summer heat, the birds/ rodents and stronger weeds rebound did not give my little fleur de lawn seedlings a chance to establish well.
    Anyway … appreciate the quick update. I'm convinced this is the lawn alternative for me. I'll use this as my base then add in some other slow growers to give more color and tapestry look. Thanks. Cheers
