Meadows are a great alternative to lawns, mowed fields, and large mulched garden beds. They can be used as design elements in most settings.

  • Save money by reducing mowing and lawn care costs
  • Contribute to native plant usage
  • Increase wildlife viewing opportunities
  • Continually changing seasonal beauty
  • Pollinator habitat with food sources, nesting and shelter
  • Excellent rainwater infiltration
