Maybe the ‘done’ look is not for you. Maybe you are looking for something a little more undone, or wild? In that case, the meadow-y look is for you. It takes a bit of work at the outset, but then you will be happy you ventured. The meadow-y look is way more sustainable over time, because if you choose native plants, they are considerably less maintenance (but not NO maintenance). Who needs a garden so be so manicured anyway? This is the 21st century-- save the look manicured for your nails.
