The Home Lawn and Garden program helps you to develop, maintain, and enjoy a Florida-Friendly Landscape. Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ is a cost-efficient method of landscaping that uses nine integrated landscape principles. You reduce maintenance and minimize the amount of water, fertilizer and pesticides in your landscape, while also protecting Florida's natural resources. Visit our Discovery Gardens to see Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ in action weekdays and the third Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bring your plant, insect and soil problems to our Master Gardener Plant Clinic for expert advice 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays.  Click on the orange titles, to visit each web paqe.
