Thanks for the tips on starting a meadow. I recently moved into a home in southern RI with over an acre of lawn sloping down to a rocky ledge overlooking the bay. I'd like to turn the bottom half of the lawn into a meadow, with meandering mowed paths like you suggest. I'm wondering how to get started--do I just let it grow wild? Seed with wildflowers? Plug in native plants? I want to avoid any trees that would block the view.
