A meadow of mixed flowers and native grasses can replace your lawn, cover a slope, or enhance a roadside. Most meadows require much less water and fertilizer than lawns do, and they rarely need mowing. Director of Horticulture Jeff Epping has researched and implemented a number of gardens at Olbrich that are very environmentally sound and can be easily incorporated into home landscapes. During this walk, he will show you how Olbrich has replaced a number of traditional lawns with sustainable, beautiful meadows – both in sun and shade – and how to maintain them.

Limited space; register early.
