No Mow May is well underway - and there are plenty of neighborhoods with shaggy yards to prove it. The movement, which has become quite popular, is more than just a catchy phrase and reason to avoid doing yardwork.

In 2019, a group of citizen scientists from the United Kingdom started a conservation study to support struggling pollinators. They encouraged homeowners to pause mowing during the month of May, allowing lawns and flowers to bloom, creating habitat and food resources for early season pollinators.
