Wait to Water

During the summer months of June through September, yards need no more than 1/2" - 3/4" of water per application. If your lawn has received enough water from rainfall, then you can turn off your irrigation system and turn it back on when needed.

Plant Database

Identify the Florida-friendly plants, including Florida native plants, that will work in your yard or landscape design. The plants included in this database are available at nurseries throughout Florida.
