Planning a Small Urban Meadow

Planning a Small Urban Meadow

Even though we don't have a yard, we still make plans for how we will design our drought-tolerant garden when we're lucky enough to have a little bit of our own outdoor space. Now that we've seen landscape designer Sean Knibb's urban meadow, we're stealing tons of ideas.

This gallery at the LA Times not only shows off some beautiful pictures of Knibbs yard, it also offers closeups of some of his favorite plants and flowers. (He also advocates planting vegetables). He also designs clever slipcovers that fit over hay bales that can then serve as outdoor seating (above).

Knibb specializes in designing small, budget-conscious gardens, so we're writing down all his planting and hardscaping tips.
