– 4 Landscaping Ideas for Florida Homes-


1. Flowers at the Front Door




Plant flowers or vining jasmine at your front door. There’s nothing more welcoming than a beautiful display of color and burst of perfumed floral aroma. Plus, if you have windows near your front entrance, you’ll get the added bonus of extra shade and a cooler living room if you plant a tall tree or flowering plant out front.


2. Floral Driveway Decor




Spruce up your driveway by planting shrubs and flowers along both sides. Carefully sculpting and choosing the perfect mix of flowers and plants will hide an unsightly slab of concrete or pavers and bring a stunning green space to your home’s entrance.


3. Lilies Like the Heat




Crinum lilies are warriors through drought and they welcome hot, humid Florida summer months. Bonuses? They don’t need fertilizer, they’re essentially indestructible and they perfume the air.


4. Hide AC Unit Eyesores With a Display of Greenery




Garages, sheds, outdoor AC units and other structures can often be an eyesore to an otherwise beautiful exterior of a home. One fun and unique way to hide these unappealing structures is to create a vertical garden made with a wooden plank.
