There’s a lot of beauty in natural or prairie gardens and best of all, there’s not a ton of maintenance! A prairie is far from a barren field many people imagine when they think of “Little House on the Prairie” or the endless rolling great plains. A prairie is a unique grassland with complex ecosystems and incredible environmental benefits. Prairies are well-adapted to the climate of the Midwest, able to withstand droughts, seasonal weather, and harsh climates. The abundant grasses within prairies allow these environments to thrive and provide food and habitat for hundreds of insects and animals that benefit gardens everywhere. Here are some great books to get you going.
