Florida is a popular place to live because of its appealing climate, unique beauty, and great quality of life. However, gardening here can be tough! Florida soils are typically sandy, summers are hot, and insects are abundant. As a gardener, you know how hard it can be to keep your plants alive, your lawn green, and your flowers blooming.

That’s where Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ can help. It makes creating and maintaining a quality landscape both easier and more Florida-Friendly through numerous helpful concepts, tools, and techniques. It helps reduce the nutrient load in stormwater runoff, and addresses the serious problems of water shortages and disappearing habitats by enlisting Floridians in the battle to save our natural resources.

This hands-on outreach program provides education to local communities that helps residents create a Florida landscape with minimal negative environmental impact – a true Florida-Friendly landscape.
