No Mow May

What is NO MOW MAY?

NO MOW MAY is a conservation program that encourages people to either reduce the frequency of mowing their lawn, or stop mowing altogether for the month of May. This creates a habitat for early-season bees and provides resources to other pollinators. This is for urban, suburban and rural areas.

Why NO MOW May?

In May, many bees are coming out of hibernation and need flowers to feed themselves and their babies. The main purpose of NO MOW MAY is to encourage people to let spring flowers in their lawns bloom before mowing. Flowers you can commonly see blooming in lawns in May include dandelions, white clover and creeping Charlie.

In recent years, there has been a steep decline in bee population world-wide that can affect global food supply, since 75% of the world’s food crops and 35% global agricultural land depends on pollinators.
