no mow.


(landscaper waiting patiently)

the city has introduced an initiative

asking residents

to let their lawns and parks

grow to one foot tall before mowing

to benefit the struggling pollinator population

the landscapers are standing down.


“the grass is always greener once you don’t have to mow a lawn anymore.”

  1. It’s a wonderful idea and known as No Mow May! It gives anything in the grass a chance to flower and for some regions the first flowering plants to offer food for pollinators. We’ve taken so much away from them already with development, pesticides, etc. that this is just a little boost. It’s been going on for several years here.
