Your new Highland home in Florida comes with beautiful landscaping, and investing in the landscaping of your home is one of the best ways to stand out in your new community. Having the best curb appeal doesn’t have to take up all of your time and money, and when you utilize Florida-friendly plants, you don’t necessarily need a green thumb for them to thrive.
This list of ten affordable and environmentally-safe landscaping tips showcases great ways to add flair to your new home without taking you away from basking in the beautiful summer sun!
Choose Sun-Friendly Plants: Buy plants that can withstand the warm summer months in Florida with minimal effort. Florida friendly plants don’t require as much water or fertilizer, which gives you more time to do the summer activities you want. Plants like beautyberries, various palm trees and beach sunflowers are very drought tolerant and are natural Florida natives. Looking to grow fruits and vegetables? Try citrus plants, cherry tomatoes and peppers. Click here to learn about more Florida friendly landscaping.
