Whether your goal is to reduce the area of lawn you need to mow, to attract birds to your garden, to provide refuge for native pollinators, or to stabilize the soil on an eroding slope, creating meadows of tough native grasses and their companion flowers is one of the most beautiful and ecologically responsible landscaping projects you can do. Unfortunately, the marketing of “Meadow in a Can” seed mixes of inappropriate non-native plants have soured many home-owners on meadows.
