Make sure the final plant selections are appropriate for the site and design. For example, choose a large evergreen tree as an indigenous arborvitae cultivar (Thuja occidentalis) and locate several to build a screen or windbreaker. Select tall deciduous trees planted away from the home's foundation on the south and west exposures to mitigate the hot summer temperatures. For shaded areas, consider shade tolerant perennials such as Indian pink (Spigelia marilandica), tiarella cordifolia, white aster (Eurybia divaricatus) and green and gold (Chrysogonum). virginianum) around shade-tolerant evergreen plants. like the Christmas fern (Polystichum acrostichoides) or the anise tree (Illicium floridanum).

It is also recommended to perform a soil test before adding fertilizers or amendments. To learn how to test the pH in your soil, read soil pH and home landscape or garden (available online at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/ss480).

If improvements are needed, keep the flower beds small and modify the entire planting bed, not just the hole for the plant. For more information on soil amendment, see Soils and fertilizers for gardeners: soil organic matter and organic soil improvers (available online at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu / mg454).
