  1. Better still, instead of not mowing, plant native plants. Plant those which bloom in early spring, and add others with bloom later. You will have blossoms to enjoy year round.

  2. That’s an interesting question regarding how well bees may be thriving. I personally hope they will rebound with a bit of extra care. I have no wish to endure Monsanto/Bayer’s version of robot bees, which has been suggested as a possible remedy.
    I think helping bee populations rebound is as slow a process as losing excess weight. It’s easy to kill bees wholesale, just as it is to gain weight. And it’s a much slower process to help bee populations rebound, just as it is to lose weight.

  3. So how did this work out…..Are bees thriving this year compared to previous years?

    What knowledge has been gained to convince me to No Mow April, No Mow May, or Low Mow Spring? Can someone share the results.

    Why mow less in the spring?

    The start of the growing season is a critical time for hungry, newly emerged native bees. Floral resources may be hard to find, especially in urban and suburban landscapes. By allowing it to grow longer, and letting flowers bloom, your lawn can provide nectar and pollen to help your bee neighbors thrive.

    Mowing less creates habitat and can increase the abundance and diversity of wildlife including bees and other pollinators. One way to reduce mowing is by participating in No Mow April, No Mow May, or Low Mow Spring.

    You don’t need to go a full month without mowing. Mowing every two or three weeks can increase flower blooms and provide food for hungry bees.
