An explosion of color swaying in the breeze, there is something so tranquil about a meadow. For pollinators and other wildlife, these spaces are life-sustaining. What you might not realize is that you don’t need sweeping vistas of space to enjoy a meadow. Creating a meadow garden, anywhere around your yard, is easier than you may think.
Even the smallest of areas – from a balcony container to a troublesome corner of an urban lot – can take advantage of the many benefits meadow gardening offers. A single packet of wildflower seeds contains remarkable power – providing habitat for all kinds of beneficial creatures and the ultimate in low-maintenance and environmentally-friendly beauty for the gardener.
In this episode, we visit meadows being used to solve real-world problems. The annual and perennial plants used in meadow blends can stand up to the punishing heat of a hell-strip, the boggy soil of low-lying areas, poor light and soil conditions, and so much more.
Along the way, we learn the ins and outs of a small seed company and see just how easy it is to install a meadow garden in the home landscape.
Come along for a look at a new trend in how to bring more peace into your space and native habitat to improve the beneficial life in your corner of the world.
