Florida Friendly Landscaping Practices

January 19, 2016 -
A Florida Friendly Landscaping Practices meeting was sponsored by the Colony Garden Club at the Beach Club on January 19, 2016.  Tips were discussed to help residents save money, protect their health, and improve landscaping. Questions were answered by experts from the University of Florida and the Nature Conservancy.

With the coming infrastructure project, Mayor Comerford and the JIC Commission have set a goal: to make JIC the Greenest Town in Florida. The Colony Garden Club supports this goal with the publication of a practical guide for residents and landscape providers. The Colony Garden Club Guide to Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ outlines nine important principles “that when put into practice can safeguard our waters, protect your health and save you money,” says Mayor Dan Comerford. “
I encourage all residents to become familiar with these science-based practices from the University of Florida and I salute the Garden Club for leading this important initiative.”
