Chapter 1 The Basic Necessities

Living things generally have two needs – food and water.

The real secret to low maintenance is irriga- tion.

A system that works well can be inexpensive or even a do-it-yourself project that will pay off tremendously.

As far as food, our soil has none of its own. So spreading a little fertilizer a few times a year isn't much work and the results can be amazing.

And, like us, plants sometimes need a bit of clean up – removing a dead stem now and then, though, is preferable to shearing that perfect hedge every other weekend.

Plants need light, too.

“Right plant, right place” holds especially true for those of us who don't want to be doing con- stant gardening chores.

Always plant things that are right for the light an area gets – and right for your zone. If you're in Zone 9B, many tropicals need protection and extra care. For planting zone info, see our Zone Map.

Things needed to have a beautiful – yet low-maintenance – South Florida property:

1. choosing easy-care plants and planting them in their ideal location

2. setting up an irrigation system (you holding the hose for five minutes is not an irrigation system)

3. fertilizing
4. minor clean-up

Chapter 2 The Low-Maintenance Chore Schedule

This is it. The very basics.

Things you WILL need to do:

• • • • • • • • •

water
fertilize
trim
pick up fallen fronds
cut off dead or dying branches spray weed killer

renew mulch
get new plants established mow the lawn

It may each one.

look like a lot until you know how often you'll have to do

Once a year:

Renew mulch.

Once or twice a year:

Spring and/or Fall. Cut back any plants that need a trim. You can do a hard pruning on fast growers and cut back slower plants a little smaller than you'd like them to be.

3 times a year:

Fertilize. Do this in late March, again in late May, and a third time in early October. (Fertilize the lawn in spring and fall.)

There's a “fertilizer blackout” throughout Florida in effect between June 1st and September 30th, so work your feeding schedule around that.
