Open Meadow Garden Landscape


For this garden landscape, we turned a hot, poorly drained, and basically dead upper lawn into an open meadow garden featuring grasses, perennials, and shrubs which typically grow under meadow conditions. We incorporated both local natives with the traditional insectiary perennials from the midwestern prairie in this garden, adding toughness to the peaceful beauty of the ever changing landscape. This garden landscaping was designed especially to enthrall young children, and the chamomile lawn they especially love. There is also a shade garden seating area built closer to the house.
