Leaving peripheral areas unmown

Leaving peripheral areas unmown on permanent grassland is a beneficial conservation practice that can help to protect wildlife and biodiversity in the area. This practice encourages plant diversity, as it allows grasses, wildflowers, shrubs, and other vegetation to grow in the uncut peripheral areas. These plants provide food and shelter for animals and can also help to stabilize soil and reduce runoff. In addition, the uncut peripheral areas act as a visual buffer, helping to protect the area from human disturbances. This practice can help to improve the health of the grassland and the surrounding environment, providing a richer habitat for wildlife.
