Meadow Gardens: with Landscape Designer Laura Eisener

WHEN: Tuesday, October 16, 2012 at 6:00PM - 7:30PM
WHERE: Blithewold Mansion

 

An expanse of meadow, large or small, can be an exciting addition to your home landscape. Not only does the changing array of colors and textures support a wide range of wildlife, it also requires less maintenance than a traditional lawn. Laura Eisener, instructor at the Arnold Arboretum Landscape Design Institute, will teach you how to design and care for a meadow of your own.
