Including an outdoor living space in your Florida-Friendly Landscape is a great way to appreciate your landscape in the company of friends and family.
An outdoor living space can take many different forms. It can be a few chairs around a fire pit, a poolside gazebo, or a turf area for kids to run and play.
Think about when you’ll be spending time in the space. Do you need lighting at night? Growing a vine on a trellis can provide afternoon shade. Plant a hedge if you need privacy.
Attract some wildlife to bring nature up close. It’s easy! Try adding a bird feeder and birdbath or plants that invite brightly colored butterflies to visit.
