grass or wild flowers

A gardener is coming to breakup our old lawn and prepare the soil for new grass.  But the process is the same for planting a wildflower medow.  The advatage to a wildflower medow is it only needs to be mowed one time a year.  It is beautiful, needs less water, and attracts good birds, bees, and insects.  I want the wild flower medow, but Juergen wants grass.  I really hope I can talk him into the medow because you can not have both.  And it cost allot to prepare the ground. 
Update : We decided to do a large wild flower border and grass for the kids to play in. So we will try to have both.
