Urban and Suburban Meadows: Bringing Meadowscaping to Big and Small Spaces

Urban and Suburban Meadows: Bringing Meadowscaping to Big and Small Spaces Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Urban and Suburban Meadows addresses the problems caused by the extensive planting of non-native grass lawns across America. In ignoring the environmental consequences of such landscape planning, ecosystems are being destroyed and replaced with chemically maintained monocultures.

Author and photographer Catherine Zimmerman combines her expertise in photography, storytelling, environmental issues, horticulture and organic practices to offer meadowscaping as a lawn alternative. Zimmerman weaves her personal journey of changing her own landscaping choices into a guide that demonstrates both the need to change current detrimental landscaping practices and the practical knowhow and resources to accomplish that change.

Four experts in meadow establishment lend their knowledge for site preparation, design, native plants, planting and maintenance. Plant lists and resource sections for nine regions across the United States provide local sources to assist the meadow creator.
