Lock up you mower for the month of May for the sake of biodiversity and watch your lawn grow for #NoMowMay.
A healthy lawn means letting long grass and wildflowers grow naturally. By doing this your lawn benefits wildlife, tackles pollution and can even lock away carbon below ground. The best part is, to reap these benefits, all you have to do is not mow your lawn in May!
We’ve lost nearly 97% of flower rich meadows since the 1970’s and with them vital food needed by pollinators, like bees and butterflies has also disappear. With over 20 million gardens in the UK, even the smallest grassy patches add up to a significant proportion of our land which, if managed properly, can deliver enormous gains for nature, communities and the climate.
Plantlife, the UK's wildflower charity want to see your lawns. Whether it’s a bustling urban mini-meadow or a tranquil patch of nature heaven, share your results with them on Twitter or Instagram using the #NoMowMay.
