Now in the second year of our Grass Cutting and Pollination Plan, developments have been made in response tofeedback from local representatives, grounds staff and citizens. The 6 week plan was adapted to green spaces thatare regularly mowed with areas of short flowering meadow as appropriate as many are sited in residential areas.

While No Mow May is aimed at gardens and local communities not councils, our partnership with Tipperary CountyCouncil in developing a long-term strategy for creating a network of long and short-flowering meadows has been hugely successful. Given the scale at which they manage areas of grass, they face unique challenges including managing large volumes of grass cuttings and balancing the needs of different land users.
