It's true that lawns need more TLC than gravel, concrete, paving or decking.
But they repay you with the wildlife they attract.
To make your lawn a real home for nature, give your mower a rest and leave it to grow a bit taller. The flowering plants that bugs love will benefit and longer grass won't dry out so quickly.
Different lengths of grass are also great for bugs and beasts to hide in.
