  1. I suggest we each make a target to keep at least one section of lawn ‘wild’.
    It can be difficult if you share a front garden with others, in which case you will have to make a compromise, but explain the reason for rewilding.

    I did this to my portion of front lawn last year, and thought it looked very pretty, besides attracting bees, butterflies and other insects. Some other residents were not of the same opinion!
    Some people unfortunately dislike insects of any type, besides wanting a perfectly weed/ and wild flower free lawn; often mowed in perfect stripes!

  2. A better approach would be to encourage more bulb planting in verges at Springtime; roads such as Kings Hall Road have looked very good this year. Leaving verges uncut for long periods of time has been tried and failed, weed growth is vastly increased and the verges never recover properly. A later mow, enjoying new bulbs would be the best start to the warmer weather. Rod Reed
