Unlike a wildflower meadow, an area of land that is completely or primarily covered with semi-rough grass that will tolerate light foot traffic, a meadow lawn is an area created from an existing traditionally maintained lawn. The lawn is allowed to grow naturally but controlled by irregular mowing and the removal of any unwanted plants. Meadow lawns can give gardeners all the benefits of the larger wildflower meadow but on a smaller, more manageable scale.

The oh-so-trendy meadow planting style, championed in grand urban schemes like New York's High Line and London’s Olympic Park, is based upon similar naturally occurring plant combinations. Here, the lawn of an abandoned building in Vancouver charmingly flourishes without anybody's consent.

What would happen if you stopped watering? Can you make that leap?
