No Mow May – Wondering what all the buzz is about?

No Mow May is underway, and residents are urged to embrace biodiversity by letting their lawns flourish. No Mow May isn’t just about letting your grass reach new heights; it’s a powerful statement in favour of biodiversity. By allowing grasses and wildflowers to grow freely, individuals contribute to the increase of pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and other essential insects. These tiny but vital creatures play a significant role in maintaining healthy ecosystems, aiding in plant reproduction and ensuring a balanced food chain. A wilder lawn not only attracts diverse wildlife but also enhances soil health, reduces water consumption, and mitigates the need for harmful chemical treatments. Moreover, No Mow May encourages environmental stewardship, as neighbours come together to embrace the beauty of natural landscapes and share tips for sustainable gardening practices.
