No Mow May

No Mow May

The City of North Mankato will be observing “No Mow May,” an initiative encouraging property owners to limit mowing grass for one month to promote habitats for early season pollinators that emerge in the spring.

Beginning Monday, May 1st, 2023, and ending Wednesday, May 31st, 2023, the City will temporarily suspend part of City ordinance (§ 90.111) that requires homeowners to maintain grass on their property to less than 6 inches tall. Residential properties that are owner-occupied or occupied by renters who receive landlord consent are eligible to register and participate. Noxious weeds will still need to be eradicated. Properties must come back into compliance in June following the end of the program.

Registration for the 2023 No Mow May initiative has closed.
