'Urban & Suburban Meadows' by Catherine Zimmerman is a new book that encourages people to use wildflowers, grasses and minimal maintenance to recreate wild landscapes in city settings.

When successful career photographer Catherine Zimmerman was 50 years old, she found that she could not afford to retire and would probably have to continue to work into her 80s. She embarked upon a second career as an organic horticulturist and landscape designer. It was in the pursuit of this second career that she became enthralled with the meadows that are the basis of her book, 'Urban & Suburban Meadows.'
