Additionally, keeping the area sanitary adds to the plants’ health and we all know, plants and flowers have the power to make people happy., and adding appropriate lighting can make the best aspects of your yard stand out at night, especially with your tropical landscapes.
South Florida’s Two Growth Areas: Why There Are Differences
is the best way to know the winter temperature ranges you can expect in your area and what plants will thrive there. Each type of plant has its own maintenance requirements, you must keep in mind, and knowing your low temps is essential. See below for a list of the zones located in Florida:
- Zone 10B – lows 35-40 degrees F
- Zone 10A – lows 30-35 degrees F
- Zone 9B – lows 25-30 degrees F
- Zone 9A – lows 20-25 degrees F
Geography, topography, and weather conditions establish each zone. Keep in mind the low-temperature ranges can vary a little from year to year depending on the local weather conditions. If you live on a borderline, it’s best to consult a local plant nursery or agricultural agent you can trust for advice.
Lower temperatures can damage plants in pots or hanging baskets more than ones planted in the ground. This applies to nursery stock plants, as well as those at your home or business location. Cold is one of a plant’s worst enemies, and you must be aware of this vital element to get optimal results from your landscaping installation and maintenance projects.
Other area differences that affect maintenance include the type of soil, the soils’ PH, coastal or inland, amount of rainfall, and wind speed. Most home and business owners have only a limited knowledge of these factors, and that’s why you need our team of experts to maintain your landscaping.

Practices for Maintaining Your Turf
Open ground in plant beds should be treated manually or by chemical means to control weeds and pests as environmental, horticultural, and weather conditions apply.
Additionally, grass needs to be mowed regularly and evenly to distribute clippings. We use the type and seasonal growth rate of your grass to determine adequate mowing needs to maintain a consistent appearance. While we always blow all excess lawn clippings from roads and walkways after each lawn mowing, leaving some clippings behind in the grass itself helps with your lawn’s nutrition. We also perform edging in all areas that need it with each cutting to prevent grass from growing into beds, borders, and hard surfaces.
Don’t forget that should be adjusted and repaired as necessary. A broken system means some areas may be underwatered while others are over watered. We complete regular inspections for the amount, direction, and distance of watering, and perform a visual check for line breaks and hot spots and repair them immediately. Our team will inspect all working parts on schedule and replace them when needed. You can count on us to keep your plants healthy and in peak condition with your tropical landscapes.
