Why should we create meadows? There are many reasons; including the richness of color, texture, movement and diversity of plants and grasses that are part of a healthy meadow. Meadows are better for the environment than a sterile lawn; a safe place for pollinators and beneficial insects. Meadows require less maintenance and consume less resources than a lawn. Meadows are constantly changing; from season to season and year to year; always offering a new surprise.
