Abstract


In 2010, several members of the Northeast Greenteam (horticulture agents) partnered to develop a follow up survey that could be used to collect information from homeowner clientele attending Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ (FFL) programs. Surveys were created using Survey Monkey and were sent out
to clients 3 to 6 months after the educational program to measure practice changes and adoption of FFL practices in 2011 and 2012. One hundred and thirty-two individuals completed the survey in 2011 and 158 responded in 2012 for a total of 290. Of the 290 responses, 153 (53%) indicated they made one or more changes to make their landscape more Florida-friendly, 92 (32%) started
with changes but were not finished, 31 (11%) will make changes over the next 12 months, and 13 (4%) will not make any changes. Questions were broken down into categories that included the following practices: fertilizer, pesticide, irrigation, right plant right place, and miscellaneous.
