Preserving and protecting Florida's water resources is the focus of the Florida-Friendly LandscapingTM (FFL) Program, which promotes 9 key principles with public outreach and education statewide. The FFL Program is a joint venture of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) and the University of Florida Institue of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS). The FFL Program works in cooperation with the state's five water management districts and other agencies and organizations to achieve the common goals of water conservation and water quality protection.
Knowing ways to conserve water and energy in the landscape is a positive step towards helping the environment for future generations to enjoy! You not only reduce your maintenance, but minimize the amount of water, fertilizer and pesticides that need to be applied to your yard.
For more detailed information, please refer to the FFL state office website or to the Florida Yards & Neighborhoods Handbook.
