Every drop of water that exits your landscape eventually moves on, and may take with it residues resulting from landscaping practices. Water that runs off of your property makes its way to our ground and surface waters, including the Lake Worth Lagoon, the Everglades and the Atlantic Ocean. Click here to view our newest brochure, Protect Palm Beach County’s Water and Environment, which explains how you can use Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ principles to achieve a beautiful, low-maintenance landscape while protecting and preserving our precious environment, ground, and surface waters.
Palm Beach County Landscape professionals know that beginning in January of 2014, anyone who applies fertilizers commercially will be required to hold a Limited Certification for Urban Landscape Commercial Fertilizer (often called the “fertilizer license”) issued by the Bureau of Entomology and Pest Control. A new UF / IFAS Palm Beach County Extension fact sheet addresses some of the most common questions related to obtaining your GI-BMP certification and fertilizer license, such as: How Do I Request a Duplicate GI-BMP Certificate, and How Do I Apply for the Fertilizer License once I receive my GI-BMP certificate?
