Florida-Friendly Interactive Yard

Creating a low-impact, Florida-friendly yard and landscape can be fun and rewarding. But, where do you start?


Start with the Interactive Yard. This online tool will take you through the steps needed to transform a yard dominated by lawn into one featuring beautiful beds with Florida-friendly plants and Florida native plants that require little or no fertilizer or irrigation.

You’ll also learn about features like micro-irrigation, compost bins, and rain barrels that make a yard environmentally friendly.

Take what you learn with the Interactive Yard and apply it to your own yard.

Note: The Interactive Yard requires the Flash plugin. Also, set your screen resolution to 1024×768 or higher. Click here for a text version or description of the features in the Interactive Yard.
