meadow garden in spring

Olbrich's Meadow Garden is a favorite of visitors and staff, especially in spring. Inspired by English meadow gardens, Olbrich's Meadow Garden features low-maintenance fescue grasses and spring flowering bulbs. The short, drought-tolerant fescue grasses eliminate the need for high maintenance and energy consumptive lawn care. The grasses don't require supplemental watering or fertilizer and are mowed just twice a year - once in late spring and again in late fall.

Olbrich Botanical Gardens is operated as a public-private partnership between the City of Madison Parks Division and the Olbrich Botanical Society.
