Nine Principles of Florida Friendly Landscaping

Nine Principles of Florida-friendly landscaping

  • Right Plant, Right Place
    Plants selected to suit the specific site will require minimal amounts of water, fertilizer and pesticides.
  • Water Efficiently
    Irrigate only when your lawn and landscape need water.  Efficient watering is the key to a healthy Florida yard and conservation of our limited water resources. Learn about micro-irrigation in west-central Florida.
  • Fertilize Appropriately
    Less is often best.  Over-utilization of fertilizers can be hazardous to your yard and environment.
  • Mulch
    Maintaining a 3" layer of mulch will help retain soil moisture, prevent erosion, and suppress weeds.
  • Attract Wildlife
    Plants in your yard that provide food, water and shelter can conserve Florida's diverse wildlife.
  • Control Yard Pests Responsibly
    Unwise use of pesticides can harm people, pets, beneficial organisms and the environment.
  • Recycle
    Grass clippings, leaves and yard trimmings, if recycled on site, add nutrients to the soil and reduce waste disposal.
  • Reduce Stormwater Runoff
    Waterfront property, whether on a bay, river, stream, pond or beach, is very fragile and should be protected as a natural treasure.
