Owen Wormser on Lawns Into Meadows – A Way to Garden with Margaret Roach – August 17, 2020
A new book came my way recently with a title that just said it all. “Lawns Into Meadows” is what it’s called, and its author, landscape designer Owen Wormser, gave me a short course on meadow-making in a recent conversation we had.
“Lawns into Meadows: Growing a Regenerative Landscape” is his book’s full title, and its approach is focused on sustainability, regeneration, and beauty, says Owen, who owns Abound Design, a firm based in western Massachusetts.
We talked about how to choose plants for a meadow or meadow garden; the steps required for proper preparation without chemical herbicides; aftercare tips and more.
