ENH1135: Adopting a Florida-Friendly Landscape: Steps for Converting a Typical Development Landscape to a Florida-Friendly Landscape

Figure 4. After Florida-Friendly landscape renovation – June 2009. A Canary Island date palm has been retained in the landscape, and the sod area has been reduced to make room for a large bed with a variety of plants, including seaside goldenrod, pentas, blackeyed susan, gaillardia, and coontie. The diverse plantings are visually appealing and also attract birds and butterflies. The white markers indicate the location of underground utilities in the new bed.
