"No Mow May"

Somebody has been having a laugh with this idea.  Unless I get a mower with floats I've had no chance of cutting the grass even if I wanted too :#

    I've been cutting mine about every 4 or 5 days. It's started growing really fast with all this lovely rain, making up for lost time I guess. It grew very little in April.

    I've left my small front lawn this month and just kept the edging tidy, trimming short around 6 inch from the edge.  It hasn't grown as much as I'd have thought,  I'm thinking the lack of cutting has slowed its rate down.

    My new next door neighbour hasn't turned her attention to the garden yet and the grass hasn't been cut this year. It will be interesting to see what happens. The frogs will enjoy it. Even without many flowers, it makes for good cover for little critters.

    Our grass seems to have grown in clumps rather than overall. There are lots of wild flowers on two sections, but one lawn doesn’t seem to have many flowers at all, quite a lot of moss as usual, it’s in shade from trees. Seriously considering converting one section to a moss lawn. We have plenty of grass in other areas of the garden, so wouldn’t miss it, and it is rather a losing battle trying to keep the moss down. Will do a bit of reading up on that.
    Dreading the first attempt at grass cutting though.
