Redesigned Landscape Conserves Water

A groundbreaking ceremony at a Clearwater condominium complex on May 16 marked a new development, but not the usual type. It was for a project will transform a 30-year-old landscape into a Florida Friendly Landscaping project.

Pinellas County Extension helped design the project over the last 18 months for the Eagles Landing I and II Condominium Associations. Board members recognized the opportunity to turn aging landscape into a sustainable, low maintenance and water-conserving landscape.

Through funding from the Southwest Florida Water Management District, the staff of Pinellas County Extension’s Florida-Friendly Landscaping program assisted with the project by providing educational sessions and landscaping guidance.

The ceremony was attended by the boards of directors of Eagles Landing I and II, the landscaping committee, the landscape designer and the community outreach coordinator of the Florida Friendly Landscaping program.
