Meadowscaping Makes It Better

Meadowscaping: The process of envisioning and cultivating a naturalistic planting to change our lives, yards, and worlds for the better.

Meadowscaping is more than planting a seed or planning a garden – it transforms ordinary spaces into a celebration of biodiversity, a habitat for birds and insects, and a home for native plants, beauty, and harmony. Learn more about how you can transform your yard and join the Meadowscaping movement.
