Beate A. Jensen, buildings and grounds preservation supervisor at Gari Melchers Home and Studio, has written an article on how to create and maintain meadows to sustain wildlife in the summer issue of Magnolia, the publication of the Southern Garden History Society. In addition to explaining how to make a meadow, the article also deals with why historic sites and other organizations that manage open land should consider converting non-native fescue lawns to native grass lands.
