A Hillside Meadow Garden
A HILLSIDE MEADOW GARDEN
This homeowner is a passionate gardener who wanted her garden to reflect her love of plants as well as her desire to respect the environment.
Replacing a large water-thirsty lawn with a meadow filled with various grasses, natives and perennials was the first step. Providing year-round interest, this meadow also attracts pollinators to the rest of her garden, provides ample cut flowers for the home – all while reducing her water bill.
Closer to her contemporary style home are geometric-shaped garden beds filled with drought-tolerant plants, combining dynamic structure and year-round color.
