Florida-Friendly Landscape Recognition
The Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ (FFL) Program recognizes landscapes that use sustainable landscaping practices. Florida-Friendly landscapes minimize the use of potable water for irrigation, avoid the runoff of excess fertilizers and pesticides from the landscape, and provide habitats for wildlife. They can take any form, from more traditional to more natural. It's how the landscape is designed and maintained that ultimately determines if it's Florida-Friendly.
Recognitions are offered for three different categories of landscapes: Home, Commercial, and New Construction. Landscapes are evaluated based on a checklist of Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ practices. Florida-Friendly landscapes receive a yard sign to display and a certificate for the recognition at either silver or gold level.
Show your commitment to protecting Florida’s water and natural resources by making your landscape Florida-Friendly and displaying your recognition sign.
Check with your local extension office to see if landscape recognition is offered in your county.
