Stop maintaining short cropped road side verges which is a costly maintenance commitment and undermines biodiversity preventing those spaces from being productive contributors to the local ecosystem.
Why is this important?
Grass verges compound the difficulties facing British pollinators by removing a potentially valuable source of indigenous flora. Its maintenance places an unnecessary strain on already stretched local government budgets and creates an environmental non-entity in a space which might otherwise be a productive habitat for wildlife.
