Naturalistic Meadow - Malvern, PA

Portfolio Type: 
Naturalistic Meadow

LANDSCAPE DESIGN SOLUTION:

This area was once a lawn, but not a great lawn given the poor soil, and sloping site behind this residence. Yet, this was a prime view from many rooms in the home. Clients wished to gain a nicer view from their deck and windows, and create a habitat to benefit birds and butterflies. A mixture of native wildflowers and native warm season grasses provides four season of interest from the plantings and brings regular wildlife visitors seeking nectar, seeds, or shelter. 

HIGHLIGHTED PLANT SPECIES:

Echinacea purpurea (Purple Coneflower); Heliopisis helianthoides; Panicum virgatum (Switch Grass); Solidago rugosa (Wrinkle Leaf Goldenrod 'Fireworks'); Coreopsis tripteris (Tall Coreopsis); Sorghastrum nutans (Indian Grass)
