While year-round sunshine makes Fort Lauderdale a desirable place to live and visit, it also creates a high demand for water. Population growth and thriving development is making water conservation more important than ever. Cultivating a Florida-Friendly Landscape is one of the most effective ways our neighbors can conserve water, and it has other important benefits too. Florida-Friendly Landscapes reduce pollution, support a healthy and balanced ecosystem, and can even save money. Use this section of our website to learn about Florida-Friendly Landscaping and how to put it to work in your yard, on your balcony and everywhere you garden.
