To mow or not to mow? That is the question.

'No Mow May' is a movement founded in the UK that encourages people to leave their lawns alone for the month for the benefit of pollinators.

To gain a better understanding of the potential pros and cons of following this concept, I spoke with an expert on how to best support pollinators in early spring. Watch the video above for their insightful remarks.
