Native seeded landscapes have established themselves as the stalwart of the sustainable design movement due to thier high species diversity and low imput requirements. However, their perception of being wild and unruly has relegated their application to multi-acre, and typically rural, sites.
At DTLS we are always finding ways to challenge conventional design thinking. We use our own gardens as test plots and this typical Saint Louis City lot is the perfect opportunity to observe firsthand how a native seeded landscape grows on a residential scale.
