Water is a precious resource that we all need. To conserve water, design your Florida-Friendly landscape to conserve water.
Use the oasis approach, placing high-maintenance plants in areas with the most visual impact, like entranceways and patios. These areas of your landscape will need the most care.
Group plants that have similar water needs together in the rest of your landscape to make watering them easier.
Use a two- to three-inch layer of mulch in your planting beds to help keep moisture in. Choose drought-tolerant plants, and consider a drought-tolerant turf such as bahia.
To help protect our environment, take the smart approach to landscaping and plan ahead!
