Garden Dialogues 2021: Concord, MA

June 13 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

- $60

Register now and learn about the use of a wetland meadow to bring sustainability in the suburbs. Crowley Cottrell’s clients wanted gardens, a basketball hoop, level lawn, a dining terrace, and to engage their whole property. They recognized their unique and ecologically sensitive location adjacent to a wet meadow surrounded by an historic wall. They loved the view of the meadow, and Crowley Cottrell helped bring it closer, while still meeting their programmatic needs.
Crowley Cottrell invited the meadow across the wall, all the way up to the street, converting the majority of the land into low maintenance, beautiful and valuable, habitat. They then carved out areas for play lawns, gardens, and terraces. The effect is a living space floating in a meadow, tied to the context of the place. While landscape architects have been promoting meadows to rural clients for ecological and operational benefits, this project pushes the boundary by bringing a meadow into a suburban space.
