Florida

The other Florida threads are getting old, so I figured it was time to start a new one. Let's see who is a member on here from Florida.


I'm just north of Orlando in Longwood, FL


Who else is in Florida?

Florida Groups

Here are links to a couple of LawnSite groups for Florida members:

Florida LawnSite Members

Central Florida

Feel free to join those and get connected to other landscape businesses around the state. I added the poll to this thread because I am curious which part of the state has the most members.

Bear - you know I am from Oviedo, just across the road from you. CK will be on here before long - I see he hasn't signed up yet.

Rob and Diamond are two other FL guys that I know are here that are not on yet.

I actually got to meet Rob the other day for a short bit - CK (Chuck) I have talked to several times and the same day I talked to Rob I thought I caught a glimpse of CK but it was actually confirmed to be another landscaper shortly after when CK and I talked on the phone.

It is kind of nice running into people in real life

Florida Hardiness Zones

I liked how you put the plant hardiness zone in your title and location. How many of you have looked at how these zones run through Florida?

Here are some links and maps of them in Florida.

Keep in mind that "Plant Hardiness Zones are only a general guide. Many other factors influence whether a plant will survive in your garden or not. You must also consider: Soil types, rainfall, daytime temperatures, day length, wind, humidity and heat. Within your own yard, block and county, there are microclimates that affect how plants grow. One part of your yard may be hotter, colder, wetter, dryer, shadier or sunnier than another and certain plants may do better in one spot than another because of this. The zones are a good beginning, but you still need to determine for yourself what will and won't work in your garden."
