Wild About Gardens: Wild About Lawns
Wild About Gardens is a joint initiative by the RHS and The Wildlife Trusts to get more people growing for wildlife.
Wild About Lawns: Bring your grassed areas to life!
This year we’re celebrating grassed spaces like playing fields or grassy banks, as habitats for wildlife. There are lots of ways we can use either whole spaces, or even just the edges, to support wildlife and some of them take no effort at all! You can leave your grass to grow and experiment with different lengths. Follow the simple BioBlitz activity in the Wild About Lawns booklet to measure the biodiversity throughout the year, and see how the changes you make allow different plants and animals to thrive.
Pledge to use your grassed spaces to help wildlife.
