Right Plant & Right Placement

Achieving a healthy, low-maintenance home landscape starts with putting the right plant in the right place. Select plants that match your site’s soil, light, water and climate conditions. Buy Florida native plants that welcome wildlife. Consider plant size when you make your purchase and aim for a diversity of trees, shrubs, groundcovers, and flowers. Once these plants are established, they’ll require little supplemental water, fertilizer or pesticides, saving you time and money. Help stop the spread of invasive plants by removing them from your yard.
