Grow Your Own Meadow, Large & Small

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, landscape designer Kathy Connolly will explore the definition of a meadow, examine the roles of grasses and flowers, and suggest steps you can take to start or improve your own meadow. She’ll also discuss common causes of failed attempts at meadow-making, how meadows differ from other “no-mow” and “low-mow” approaches to the landscape, sources of seeds, plants, tools, and the role of soil. An extensive resource list is included.
