Many people believe or perceive much of florida soils as “sand.” After all, we are the floating sandbar of the South! When they go to the beach or walk around a beach property, it is very sandy. However, in many coastal hammocks (before vegetation was removed), there is a rich layer of organic soil. Many of the plant life thriving in the hammock rely on these rich soils. Several inches of leaf litter decaying underneath a canopy of trees creates a dark, rich soil that we typically perceive with healthy soils. This nutrient rich organic soil is what Sustainscape tries to create in your landscape, both naturally and through our fertilization program.
