No Mow May 🐝

No Mow May is back! Let’s recap: No Mow May is a voluntary, pollinator-friendly, environmental initiative that allows you to skip mowing your lawn for the entire month of May. Grass and weeds code enforcement will be suspended for the entire month, so there will be no ticketing whatsoever. Just keep in mind that enforcement will resume in June, so please schedule your lawn care accordingly.
