No Mow May
Our month-long display of a section of lawn left unmowed will give pollinators a boost. Extra insects living in the taller stalks provide food for parents feeding baby birds. No Mow May asks homeowners to do everyone’s favorite thing in the world: absolutely nothing. Consider keeping a section of your lawn mowed just once a year. See what birds and insects enjoy the new diversity of plants that grow when you only mow edges and pathways in your lawn.
