The Beauty of No and Little Mow Fescue and Pollinator Lawn

For those folks that want a lawn monoculture of fescue there are options with a lighter footprint on Mother Earth and on the checking account – and no mow is one of them. Get it established in the Fall and leave it alone other than a bit of weeding and weed wacking above the mounds a few times a year.

Then there is a hybrid option of high and very high mowing, if you have the right mower, a few more times a year, but nothing like every few weeks. This is a three species lawn, lots of shade, where we balance violets, clover, and fescue to produce a lush and beautiful palette that could be considered a kind of cool season meadow or as we also say a pollinator lawn.
