Spend the day learning from soil experts as we examine soil in the managed landscape.
A properly constructed meadow is aesthetically pleasing while providing valuable ecosystem services including erosion control and biodiversity. The biodiversity of a Meadow includes a varied ecosystem populated by many species from all levels of the food chain. “The more it swarms, crawls, flies the better it is.” Biodiverse meadows sustain a wide variety of pollinators including bird populations by supplying many forms of food. The ultimate success of a meadow requires proper site preparation, installation, and maintenance.
