The online application takes between five and 10 minutes to complete. You will be asked to fill in some basic information and to complete a simple checklist about your landscape. You will also need to upload a recent photo of your landscape. If you do not have a recent photo available, you can write a brief description of your landscape.
Simply complete the online form and submit it no later than June 30, 2017 for this year’s program.
Step 2–On-Site Evaluation:
If your landscape meets the basic criteria for the awards based on your application, a local Florida-friendly landscaping representative will contact you to schedule an on-site evaluation of your landscape and irrigation. The evaluations are completed during regular business hours. While applicants need not be present during the evaluation, judges will need access to all areas of the landscape as well as the irrigation system controller, if applicable. Pets must be secured during this process.
On-site evaluations typically take place during July, August and September and award recipients are notified shortly thereafter. If these months don’t work for you, let us know and we’ll work with your schedule.
