A Meadow vs. A Maze
In the fall of 2019, we established a Mini-Meadow, 58 x 72 feet, in place of our Maze to serve as a pollinator area to increase biodiversity and improve our carbon footprint. It has been a slow start, and we are modeling the maintenance requirements of a no-mow mini meadow for the members of our community.
We hope that this will inspire other community members to turn some of their lawns into meadows, and see the beauty of native plants that are beneficial to our pollinators while also reducing their carbon footprint.
We have been meeting regularly to continue developing our meadow. lWe will be removing mugwort and rye grasses and planting mature plants, seeds and plugs of native grasses and pollinator plants.
