Let it grow
This is so simple, you don’t even have to lift a finger! Just set aside an area of grass and let it grow. The whole point is to allow whatever flowers are there to grow to their full flowering potential before you cut them back. This will provide lots of pollen and nectar for visiting insects; not to mention saving time constantly cutting grass! There are two options: a 6-week meadow and a one-cut meadow:
