About the handbook

The Meadowscaping Handbook: Designing, Planting and Managing an Urban Meadow

A collection of knowledge and “lessons learned” by regional ecologists and landscape professionals. It is not meant to be 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.

You may download a free digital copy or order a printed book!  Purchasing a printed copy of this book helps ensure we are able to continue to offer the handbook to the public.

This publication was produced through a collaborative effort with members of the Pacific Northwest Urban Meadowscaping working group and other ecologists and landscape professionals in the Portland Metro region. It is a unique handbook with the latest knowledge small-scale Willamette Valley urban meadows and the important habitat features they support.

The Meadowscaping Handbook may be purchased or downloaded for personal use only. No reproduction of this book is permitted without expressed written consent of West Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District.
