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

Figure 7. AFTER Florida-Friendly landscape renovation -- June 2009. The overgrown plants and some of the sod were replaced with a greater variety of plants. The newly installed plants require a thick mulch layer to reduce moisture loss and prevent weeds. These plants will grow quickly and cover the mulch and foundation gravel.
