Florida-Friendly Landscaping FAQs

We have received many questions related to water use and water quality in the landscape in Florida. Many of these issues are discussed relative to proposed local landscaping ordinances and development of public policy. We wanted to be sure that the most currently available science is available. Our faculty have developed three new publications on:

Landscape Irrigation for Florida-Friendly Landscaping Ordinances


Landscape Fertilization for Florida-Friendly Landscaping Ordinances


Florida-Friendly Landscaping


The materials contained in these publications are the scientific basis for all FYN/Florida-Friendly Landscaping materials at the University of Florida/IFAS.  We encourage you to share this information with anyone or any groups/organizations that would benefit from this information.
