Looking for inspiration
we have a new house with a small woods full of native species and trees. It is next to a large lawn. We're looking at ways to convert areas of lawn to prairie and I'd love to find some design inspiration.
My wife really wants something that looks very intentional. I know that's a little counter-intuitive with prairie, but I was thinking of sort of "zoning" in the plantings so going group plantings and going from short to taller. I think it would be nice to transition form the edge of the woods through the lawn.
This is not a huge site so group plantings wouldn't be too difficult. We'll most likely be meeting with a prairies restoration specialist to look at options but I'd love to see some examples which would also work well with convincing my wife that things aren't going to look like a pile of weeds.
