Celebrate Earth Day with a commitment to practicing Florida-Friendly Landscaping. Apply these nine principles to your property to positively impact our state’s natural resources, residents, and wildlife. Plant selection and placement, watering and fertilization practices, pest management, and more are critical in protecting our precious environment.
Create a wildlife-friendly landscape that attracts native insects, birds, organisms, and other creatures. Plant a pollinator garden; provide shelter throughout your property for insects and small critters; install water sources like bird baths or fountains; and select native plants to support beneficial wildlife.
Earth Day may occur just once annually, but it draws attention to a perennial principle—we have a role to play in caring for the Earth. Your part might be to just plant differently in your own home and yard.
