Select native plants and grasses for your landscape. These require less water and are drought resistant. More information is available from the Florida Native Plant Society. Also, group plantings together according to their water and sunlight needs. This allows for a more efficient landscape, in turn saving you time and money!
Weed Killers and Pesticides
Pulling weeds is better for the environment, but if you choose to use pesticides, use them sparingly and according to packaging directions.
Abide by the St. Johns River Water Management District watering restrictions. Over-watering will only carry yard pollutants into the stormdrains and eventually into the river. Turn off your irrigation system if the forecast calls for rain.
