My Brevard Yard

My Brevard YardThe My Brevard Yard program teaches you how to create and maintain a beautiful lawn while minimizing pollutants that enter our waterways.

You will learn how to:

  • figure out how much fertilizer to apply to your lawn,
  • what kind of fertilizer will give you the healthiest lawn,
  • decide the best time to apply fertilizer,
  • calculate how long to run your sprinkler system, and maintain a healthy lawn while complying with your local fertilizer ordinance.

One or three-hour workshops are available. Longer workshops are great for municipalities, homeowner associations, and other large groups. Call 321.633.1702 x 222 or email to schedule a group workshop.

My Brevard Yard is part of the UF/IFAS Florida-Friendly Landscaping® Program.
