Create a Beautiful Florida Garden
A great way to Be Floridian Now is to start a rain garden with Florida native plants! Instead of rainwater from your roof flowing into the street and into storm drains, rain gardens contain the runoff and allow it to slowly percolate into the soil. Florida native plants are a great choice to use in your rain garden because they are well-adapted to Florida’s environment, decreasing the need for fertilizers and pesticides while providing a critical habitat for local wildlife and pollinators.
