Meadows are an uncommon natural feature in the north eastern United States. While they do exist, generally open land transitions to forest after a period of time without yearly disturbances (fire, animal grazing).
Meadows provide an important role in the health and well being of our pollinators.
In the suburban landscape, we spend a lot of energy and effort toward maintaining our strictly ornamental gardens and lawns.
Meadow gardens allow us as human stewards to expand upon Nature while also reducing our landscape’s energy and maintenance needs.
