Florida Friendly Yards

April 27, 2010 - Sylvia Heldreth

I sometimes hear from homeowners who spend thousands of dollars a year for landscaping services and water as much as possible to keep their lawns beautiful.  They wonder if they can take legal action against their neighbors who use Florida native and Florida-friendly plants instead of traditional lawns because they don't need fertilizers, watering or much maintenance.  They don't like the native look.

The Water Rights Bill protects these yards because traditional lawn and landscape irrigation uses a tremendous amount of water which has serious impact upon the Florida aquifer that provides the state's drinking water.  The traditional homeowners argue that these yards are having serious impact upon their property values.

What do you think?
