      You could plant native grasses such as Indian Grass, Shooting Star, Bergamot, prarie dock, cone flowers, liatris Spikada.

      Usually, at the end of summer, walmart has a sale on flower seeds for .10 a packet. Get a bunch of different prairie flowers amd dump all of the seeds together. Till up the soil along the edge of your property, just wide enough for a border and spread the seeds by tossing handfuls. Then, spread a bale of hay to keep the birds from eating your new border. Most of the flowers will reseed themselves next year.

      Best wishes
