New! Shipping fee is included (within the contiguous US). By Owen Wormser. Illustrated by Kristen Thompson.
Wormser, a landscape designer from Massachusetts, asks readers to consider the danger posed to our planet by the vast amounts of lawn that consume enormous amounts of resources every year. Lawns do provide spaces for leisure and recreation, but outside of that, the way most lawns are utilized is a problem. The solution? Planting meadows as part of a regenerative landscaping approach.
Meadows are low-maintenance and low-cost, they provide habitat for wildlife and pollinators, and they store much more carbon than a manicured lawn. On top of that, they provide aesthetic beauty throughout the entire year.
Wormser gives advice and examples for the reader to see how they can design and plant a meadow of their own. He also acknowledges the need to build support in order to educate homeowners in communities where a well-manicured lawn is the status quo.
Lawns Into Meadows is a good read for environmentalists, climate activists, gardeners and non-gardeners as well. 160 Pages
