Did you know…

Allowing grassland habitats to develop in a more natural manner in urban settings by reducing grass cutting or sowing flowering plants offers

  • increased biodiversity as birds, mammals and insects are attracted to wilder or more natural areas
  • reduced costs of maintained areas of grassland
  • added colour to the cityscape as we plant flowering species
  • reduces CO2 release due to less cutting, which also helps lock-up carbon in soils.
