He claims longer grass provides food for migrating birds
September 20, 2023 By Turf & Rec
A Charlottetown, P.E.I. man plans to fight city hall after being told he violated a local bylaw over the length of his lawn.
The man was issued with an order to mow his lawn last month because it exceeded 150 millimetres in length, and now the city plans to mow it without his permission, he claims.
The resident says he hasn’t fielded any complaints from others and argues allowing his lawn to become naturalized provides food for migrating birds and brings the lawn to life.
The plaintiff says he plans to speak with an environmental attorney about his case.
