Taylor Wimpey South Wales is supporting British conservation charity Plantlife’s ‘No Mow May’ initiative, helping to encourage wildlife to thrive at its Elgar Place development in Hereford.

According to Plantlife, the UK has lost 97% of its flower-rich meadows since the 1970s*, resulting in a drastic decrease in important food sources for pollinators. Throughout ‘No Mow May,’ individuals, businesses and organisations around the UK are invited to put the lawnmower away for a month to allow their grass to grow freely, resulting in many benefits to wildlife.

As part of its wider commitments to creating greener, healthier communities, Taylor Wimpey is pledging to keep selected green spaces and wildflowers thriving at its Elgar Place development in Hereford.

Danielle Heard, Sales and Customer Service Director for Taylor Wimpey South Wales, said: “We are committed to creating greener, healthier communities for our customers and taking part in No Mow May is one of the many ways we are doing just that. It’s a fantastic initiative and one that has a real benefit to our environment, and we’re pleased to be playing our part to help.”

Local residents living on the development and in the wider Hereford area are encouraged to join Taylor Wimpey in this movement. To take part, they’re simply encouraged to stop mowing their grass throughout the month of May, and share pictures of their progress on social media, using the hashtag #NoMowMay.
