Mr. Marchael presents an overview of meadow creation and design along with the biodiversity that results from putting back what nature intended. This presentation offers a glimpse into the rich species diversity that comes from establishing a meadow and making the right choices from design through maintenance. Plant communities that dominate the natural ecosystems will be a focus.
