Regularly cut, closely mown grass may look tidy - but it has little benefit for wildlife. Reducing mowing on road verges and amenity grasslands will allow grasses and wildflowers to grow. This creates a better habitat for ‘Them’: invertebrates, birds, small mammals, amphibians and reptiles.
This is why we are launching our ‘It’s For Them’ campaign. Our aims are to increase the awareness of people who manage grass cutting and the public of the benefits of mowing less and creating healthy biodiversity. We need your support to make this a success and we’ve created this toolkit and the assets in it to for you to use to promote the campaign.
