The initiative invites individuals, businesses and organisations around the UK to let their grass grow throughout the month of May to encourage wildflowers to grow and wildlife to thrive.
Grassy areas at Oak Spring Place in Bourne, Whittlesey Fields in Whittlesey and Newton Park at Handley Chase in Sleaford were left to grow and residents were encouraged to put their lawnmowers away too.
Olivia Peters, Sales and Marketing Director for Taylor Wimpey East Midlands, said: “It’s really important to us that we encourage and enhance wildlife in our communities. It’s been great to see plants thrive and to have played our part in creating a more welcoming environment for pollinators.‘No Mow May’ is a great initiative and one we’ll continue to support.”
