Do you want to turn your yard into a Florida-Friendly landscape? The Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) and the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) may guide you to do so.
The City of Sanibel has recently received a notice from these two environmental protection departments that they seek Florida homeowners who would like to turn their yard into a Florida-Friendly landscape a part of the “Flip My Florida Yard (FMFY) television series.
The Flip My Florida Yard team will work with the chosen homeowners to develop a plan to flip the current yard and bring it to life. According to the size and needs of the yard, you can either convert your entire yard or just a part of it.
The FMFY team will visit the selected homes around the state for the ultimate Florida-Friendly makeover and convert the selected yards to help protect and conserve Florida’s natural resources through science-backed landscape practices. The landscape designs are based upon the nine principles of Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ (FFL): right plant, right place; water efficiently; fertilize appropriately; mulch; attract wildlife; manage yard pests responsibly; recycle yard waste; reduce storm-water runoff, and protect the waterfront.
