Florida Yards and Neighborhoods


Florida Yards and Neighborhoods can help you transform your yard into a beautiful oasis that will not only conserve precious water resources and reduce pollution, but will also help you save time, effort and money.

The program was developed to address serious problems of pollution and disappearing habitats by enlisting homeowners in the battle to save our natural environment. This program provides specialized educational and out-reach activities for our community to help residents reduce pollution and enhance their environment by improving home and landscape management.
