Landscaping Tips for Lawn Care

A well-planned landscape can be beautiful, functional, easy to maintain, and it can even help to increase your property’s value. Unfortunately, our yards are actually the greatest source of contamination of the groundwater, which is the main source of drinking water in South Florida. Overusing or incorrectly using pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers can damage your plants and contaminate our groundwater.

Remember, pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers can be dangerous.

  • Always read warning labels
  • follow the manufacturer’s instructions, and use the most dilute solution recommended.
  • Store chemicals out of the reach of children and pets.
