A typical bee lawn and an un-mowed lawn in May will not provide the same nutritional quality or sustained habitat throughout the season as native plantings. Weeds such as dandelions and creeping charlie are likely to be an unwelcome nuisance in your neighbor's yards and do not provide adequate nutrition for pollinators.
Even a small pocket garden of carefully chosen native plants can provide pollinators with high quality nectar, pollen, larval host plants and other habitat conditions they require to complete their life cycles.
