Florida Yards & Neighborhoods


Environmental Horticulture




In a Florida yard, grass clippings, leaves and yard trimmings are recycled rather than thrown away. They provide natural nutrients for the landscape.

  1. Leave grass clippings on the lawn after mowing

  2. Use fallen leaves and pine needles as mulch under trees and shrubs. It’s FREE too!

  3. Create and maintain a compost pile with yard waste and kitchen scraps. NO animal products.
