  • Plant This Not That
    Plant This - Not That

    Tina McIntyre, Rachel Gutner, Sandra Wilson, and Morgan Pinkerton

    The plants you bring home from garden centers and nurseries may look beautiful in your landscape, but they might be invasive species that can escape your yard and quickly spread into other areas, becoming an ecological and economic nightmare.

    Twenty-two full-color entries feature an invasive plant that is commonly found for sale, including its description, distribution and range, and ecological threat. Each of these bad actors is paired with a list of beautiful non-invasive alternatives to plant instead.

    The guide also features an introduction to invasive plants, a list of resources and a detailed bibliography for further study.

    Plant This - Not That is a handy thing to have when you're shopping for new plants. Combined with Florida-Friendly LandscapingTM resources, you can make informed decisions that will result in a beautiful landscape that grows in harmony with its natural surroundings.

  • The Art of Maintaining a Florida Native Landscape
    The Art of Maintaining a Florida Native Landscape
    Planting a native landscape in Florida will reduce your use of water, fertilizer, and pesticides--but that doesn't mean it will be maintenance-free. This refreshingly honest book offers practical advice for keeping your native landscape healthy and sustainable throughout the year. Acclaimed author Ginny Stibolt, an experienced gardener and botanist, dispels the myths of working with native plants and delves into such topics as removing invasives, propagation techniques, managing edges, going without mowing, and landscaping in moist habitats. Easy-to-read and supplemented with photos, illustrations and useful tips, this book is a must-read for novices and advanced gardeners alike. 270 pp.

  • The Right Plants for Dry Places: Native Plant Landscaping in Central Florida
    The Right Plants for Dry Places: Native Plant Landscaping in Central Florida
    From Great Outdoors Publishing/National Book Network:

    Native plant landscaping is based on the principle of putting the right plant in the right place. Rather than first choosing your plants and then modifying the site the suit them (a process that often requires much time, effort, topsoil, fertilizer, pesticide, water and mulch), you first determine the nature of your site and then select native plants that will thrive in that location.

    If your soil is dry, inland and in Central Florida, then this book is especially for you.  Your soil is
    DRY if puddles disappear within a few minutes after a heavy rain,
    INLAND if your property does not touch any saltwater body and does not receive salt spray in the wind, and
    IN CENTRAL FLORIDA if your property lies in or between Levy, Marion and Volusia counties at the north end and Lee, Hendry and Broward counties at the south.

  • Large tree at a park with a view of a city in the distance
    Urban Ecology for Citizens and Planners
    From University of Florida Press:
    Ideal for city residents, developers, designers, and officials looking for ways to bring urban environments into harmony with the natural world and to make cities more sustainable, this book offers a wealth of information and examples that will answer fundamental scientific questions, guide green initiatives, and inform environmental policies and decision-making processes.

    This book provides an overview of the synergistic relationships between humans and nature that shape the ecology of urban green spaces. It also emphasizes the social and cultural value of nature in cities for human health and well-being. Chapters describe the basic science of natural components and ecosystems in urban areas and explore the ideal of biophilic urbanism, the philosophy of building nature into the framework of cities. To illustrate these topics, chapters include projects, case studies, expert insights, and successful citizen science programs from urban areas around the world.

    Authors Gail Hansen and Joseli Macedo argue that citizens have increasingly important roles to play in the environmental future of the cities they live in. A valuable resource for real-world solutions, this volume encourages citizens and planners to actively engage and collaborate in improving their communities and quality of life.
