The Meadowscaping Handbook

Our new Meadowscaping Handbook is finished!  The new guide to meadowscaping for gardeners, landscape professionals and ecologists in the Willamette Valley is now available for download at the link below.  If you’d like to request a free soft-bound copy, click here for the order form (If you ask that a book be mailed, you will incur a shipping cost).

The Meadowscaping Handbook: Designing, planting and Managing an Urban Meadow is a collaborative effort with members of the Pacific Northwest Urban Meadowscaping working group and other local professionals. The handbook is a compilation of the knowledge and “lessons learned” by members of the Pacific Northwest Urban Meadowscaping (PNUM) working group, regional ecologists, and landscape professionals. Rather than a technical manual, the handbook is designed as a “how-to” publication to help gardeners, landscape professionals and ecologists in the Willamette Valley plan, design, plant and maintain native plant meadows on small urban plots.

West Multnomah Urban Conservationist Mary Logalbo, who served as the project manager, says, “We’re pleased to offer this publication to all that have expressed an interest in meadowscaping. There is no other handbook focused on small-scale Willamette Valley urban meadow management so we feel honored to be able to fill the gap with the latest knowledge on planning and designing these important habitat features.”

The Meadowscaping Handbook can be downloaded for personal or individual use. No reproduction or copying of this book can be made without expressed written consent of the West Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District.
