    Larry will present his Native Wildflower Meadows: Let’s Get Real lecture to the members of the Master Gardeners of Bergen County on Tuesday evening, April 25th at 7:30 pm.

    Demand for native meadows, particularly as alternatives to lawn, is increasing and yet few types of landscape plantings are more misunderstood than native meadows, with failures often resulting from inadequate planning and the use of poorly adapted plants. Better results can be achieved when the design reflects the ecological character of naturally occurring meadows. More than one-year wonders, meadow plantings modeled on actual meadow communities provide long-term, easily managed landscapes that harbor a myriad of birds and butterflies, and provide color and texture throughout the year. This presentation discusses meadow design, implementation and management strategies using a series of case studies ranging in age from three to ten years.

    All too often in our gardens and landscapes we think of static compositions of carefully placed and managed plants. But our approach can be more dynamic–and arguably more rewarding–than that by taking advantage of plants’ natural abilities to reproduce and proliferate. Learn how designer Larry Weaner combines design with the reproductive abilities of plants as well as ecological processes to create compelling, ever-evolving landscapes that bring new meaning to partnering with nature. Using examples from his own property as well as diverse client projects, Larry will show how this give-and-take approach can result in compelling, low-maintenance landscapes that free plants to perform according to their natural abilities and liberate people from having to cater to their landscapes’ every need.
