Your Florida Lawn

A healthy lawn is an asset to the urban environment. Lawns cool and clean the air, reduce glare and noise, and filter pollutants out of ground water. A well-tended lawn can raise the value of a property and beautify a neighborhood.

Drawn from University of Florida research, "Your Florida Lawn" is the latest lawn-care information to guide homeowners through all the steps needed to achieve that healthy, beautiful, Florida-friendly lawn.
