Meadows are a way to replace lawn, improve pollinator habitat, and beautify the landscape - but what is a meadow? Is it a lawn gone feral or a perennial bed gone wild? Or is it something else altogether?
In this talk, we'll explore the definition of a meadow, examine the roles of grasses and flowering plants, and talk about the most important steps in meadow-making. We'll also discuss common causes of failed attempts, how meadows differ from other “no-mow” and “low-mow” approaches to the landscape, sources of seeds, plants, tools, and the role of soil. A plant and resource list will be distributed.
