Sustainable Garden

What Is A Sustainable Plant or Landscape?


Florida’s unique climate of intense rain, heat and humidity during the summer, followed by a lengthy dry season can create a daunting challenge for those wishing to establish successful gardens and landscapes.

Riverland Nursery embraces the concept of sustainability which is the practical application of designing and selecting plant material that will flourish in our unique and often challenging climate and soil conditions. Our objective is to provide our customers with the information needed to enable them to select plants  that will flourish with minimal water and care. These include native Florida plants, as well as non-natives that have the characteristics needed for long-term success. 

Many plants that we showcase and recommend are wildlife attractants. These are plants that attract various types of birds, hummingbirds and butterflies that can make your garden and landscape an educational and joyful experience.
