State seeking property owners to ‘flip’ their yard

By Staff | Jul 22, 2021

The Florida Department of Environmental Protection and University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences are seeking nine Florida homeowners who want help “flipping” their yard into a Florida-Friendly landscape as part of the “Flip My Florida Yard” television series.

The FMFY team will work with the selected homeowners to determine how to flip the yard, develop a landscape design and bring it to life. Depending on the size and needs of the landscape, a yard or a portion of the yard could be flipped.

The show will travel to homes around the state for the ultimate Florida-Friendly makeover, transforming selected yards to help protect and conserve Florida’s natural resources through science-based landscape practices. The landscape designs are based upon the nine principles of Florida-Friendly Landscaping: right plant, right place; water efficiently; fertilize appropriately; mulch; attract wildlife; manage yard pests responsibly; recycle yard waste; reduce stormwater runoff; and protect the waterfront.
