Bad Haircuts to Mullet Lawns: Embrace ‘No Mow May’ and Help the Bees
Everyone's had a bad haircut before. Maybe you've had one recently. They aren't easy to overcome. A style gone haywire can have a huge impact on both your personal and professional life.
Are You Sure You Want To Cut That and NOT That?
'No Mow May' is here. This is a time of year when residents, of certain cities and townships, are not only given permission, but are encouraged to not mow their backyards. This will allow the dandelions and other sources of food for our pollinating friends the bees to do what they need to do to keep the food chain going.
Jackson and East Lansing, Michigan are two cities that have jumped on board this effort. Normally, in Jackson, if your grass were to be over 8 inches you would be charged as much as $200 to have the city come out and cut your lawn. Jackson and East Lansing are forgoing their normal ordinances and allowing you to forget the backyard and focus on the front.
Business in the Front, Party in the Rear
If you decide to go all in on 'No Mow May' you can do knowing that, more than likely, your lawn has always secretly wanted a mullet. It's talked to neighboring lawns about how perfect your mowing lines are, and how your lawn truly appreciates you alternating your mowing pattern each week so that it has that pristine checkerboard look. You stand on the porch and gaze upon the splendor of a freshly trimmed yard, resisting the urge to flag down passing cars and have them look at your meticulously cared-for lawn.
Despite all of this, your yard has an inner rebel it's been dying to let out. Give your grass the chance to...let its grass down? Give your yard a mullet, help the bees, and tick off that one neighbor who likes things neat.
