Spring into action with No Mow May

This month, Wirral Council is supporting Plantlife’s Annual No Mow May campaign for the third year running.

Instead of cutting the grass, council teams are cutting down on their mowing time until June to help our parks and open spaces (including some verges) grow and encourage wildflowers to flourish.

Supporting this campaign helps to reduce pollution and support insects such as bees, butterflies, and other wildlife, known as pollinators.

For more information about how Wirral Council maintain grass areas, visit the council’s website www.wirral.gov.uk/grasscutting

Grass will still be cut in areas such as sports pitches, bowling greens, play areas, grass verges (where sight lines are needed for road safety), and formal areas (such as Hamilton Square).

If you fancy supporting the national campaign, residents with gardens are encouraged to stop mowing too. This could be for your whole garden, or just a section of it.
