Why Buy Native

Residential landscapes are often filled with plants that grow well in our climate but offer little else to the surrounding environment. My goal is to bring a botanical garden-like atmosphere to the landscape while keeping valuable resource uses, like water, to a minimum.

    My husband and I had been interested in a landscape of Florida native plants since the house was purchased in July 2013, but we didn’t have a clue how to do start or which plants to incorporate. Fortunately we were lead to Amanda Martin. This young woman has a plethora of knowledge involving not only Florida native plants, but landscaping with them, and also bee keeping. We are so grateful for her expertise and continued dedication to the yard she created. Thanks, Amanda!

    Amanda created a beautiful native landscape plan for our new home. She knew what grew here before the orange groves and subdivisions and included the natives that will easily thrive and support the butterflies, birds and other insects and critters that will visit and live in our yard. We are so enjoying our new yard!

    Just stopped into a local nursery, met Amanda, bought some great plants, and supported local business. You should do the same. Support this local lady making it happen.
