Meadowscaping in Urban & Suburban Landscapes

A 2014 Winter Lecture Series Presentation



Meadows sequester carbon, retain water, filter pollutants, eliminate the need for lawn chemicals, and provide habitat.  Catherine Zimmerman, Meadow Project founder presents a convincing case for Meadowscaping. This engaging lecture is the final talk in the popular four-week Winter Lecture Series. In it, Catherine also shows you how to create a beautiful, thriving, low- cost, low-maintenance meadow habitat in your landscape. Catherine’s book, Urban and Suburban Meadows, is a stunning introduction to meadowscaping that inspires readers do away with pesticides, reduce lawns and return their land to a beautiful, natural habitat for native plants and wildlife. It will be available for purchase and signing following the lecture.


The Winter Lecture Series is sponsored by Delaware Grounds Management Association. This lecture is sponsored by the Garden Club of Wilmington.
