Webinar: Lawn to Meadow, or How I Killed My Lawn During COVID (Free to All)
Wed, April 20 @ 12:00 pm EDT - 1:00 pm EDT
A Wednesday Walk in the Garden
Visit Leslie Duthie’s lawn murder in south central Massachusetts and learn the techniques she used to kill the lawn and turn it into a meadow. She will detail the steps she used to transform the space. What were the pitfalls? What were the high points? You’ll see the species chosen for the site – both annual and perennial. Then find out what Leslie’s plans are for the future of the yard and how she will make it more wildlife and pollinator friendly.
Leslie Duthie is a native plant horticulturist and worked for over 40 years in the field. She started her journey into native plants at Garden in the Woods, but spent most of her career transforming the public landscape of the Norcross Wildlife Sanctuary into various habitat gardens including shade gardens, meadow enhancement and a large sand plain garden. She has retired from working at a garden and is transforming her own personal space into a combination of the native and garden plants she loves.
