Prairie Meadows are a new development in horticulture where colourful naturalistic planting schemes are sown in situ. The results have the impact of a traditional border but the look and feel of a meadow. And they are great for wildlife.
Plantforms has spent the last few years learning the technique and is now offering it in Edinburgh and across the Lothians.
Best suited to large areas, maintenance is very low at around 6hour/100sqm/year. After establishment the maintenance needn't be highly skilled. Costs are low even compared with mowing grass.
Being perennial these schemes go on for years with no need for re-sowing. Planning is key so get in touch to discuss your project.
