In an effort to showcase Florida’s amazing and diverse plant material and to advocate for professionally designed and installed landscapes, FNGLA is partnering with Crawford Entertainment, the producers of ‘How to Do Florida’ with their newest series ‘Flip My Florida Yard.’

The show selects Florida homeowners whose outdoor areas are in need of a facelift and teams up with professionals to provide a Florida-friendly yard which meet the homeowners needs.  Along the way, Chad, and his featured make-over participants, teach Florida’s consumers best practices for creating their own robust outdoor space such as following the Florida-friendly principles and/or hiring a professional landscaper/designer to help bring the project together.

Chock full of tips and Florida-based facts, the show will air this Spring.  A pilot show was produced in 2016 featuring an all-native landscape with the help of the Florida Association of Native Nurseries (FANN). With FNGLA’s episodes, consumers will be directed to www. FloridaGardening.org to source ideas, inspirations and assistance with their outdoor areas.

FNGLA signed on as title sponsor for four episodes. One episode is filmed and being edited for airing later this Spring.  The additional three will film in Broward County; Orlando; and, the Greater Tampa Bay area. 

Special thanks to the area FNGLA chapters and to the individuals who have and are in the process of coordinating this effort.  It’s a sizeable task!

FNGLA will communicate to our members the air dates for all four “FNGLA episodes” once they are set! For more details on FNGLA’s involvement, contact FNGLA’s Jennifer Nelis, jnelis@fngla.org.

FNGLA’s first chapter to “flip” was Frontunners-- who set a very high bar when they took the home of Brandon and Kim Kutner and gave them a turf-free front yard using Florida-friendly plant material.  They also updated the back patio space (hardscape and palms) and installed several vegetable trough gardens to complete the home’s make-over.
