Slope Meadows

expanding the cracks

This urban meadow located in Park Slope Brooklyn was designed with native plants to encourage birds and butterflies to enjoy the garden as much as humans. All of the plants are low maintenance and drought tolerant and do not require any extra irrigation once the plants become established. With a low budget in mind, the hardscape of the meadow was built by simply enhancing the existing cracks and crevices that were created by weeds such as daisy fleabane and mugwort. The weeds were replaced with natives such as moss phlox, blazing star, and joe pye weed.
