Our program operates a recognition process for properties that practice the nine principles of the Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ program.
These principles are:
This recognition is not limited to single family homeowners; it is also offered to multifamily properties and businesses. Our goal in Palm Beach County is to have more Florida-Friendly recognized properties than any other county in the state.
In Palm Beach County, a knowledgeable group of Master Gardeners serve as Yard Advisors and visit your location and conduct an educational evaluation as to whether the property meets the minimum standards. Achievement of Florida-Friendly™ Yard Recognition is a great source of pride for residents, management, and owners. Successful recognition results in a sign posted on the property and entry into a statewide database. Recognition also earns points towards the Florida Green Building Coalition Green Home Certification.
