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.
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.
