No Mow Zones

No mowing zones are beneficial for a number of reasons:

  • Returns areas back to their natural state
  • Allows for the opportunity of reforestation
  • Provides flowers for pollinators 
  • Provides habitats for insects, birds, and other animals
  • Slows storm runoff, reduces erosion, and reduces pollution
  • Reduce energy and fossil fuel use and cuts CO2 emissions 


Keep an eye our for our No Mow Zone signs across the county.
