Great lawn and landscaping information for Central Florida.
In this area of Florida that includes Palmetto, Parrish, and Bradenton, we are blessed with a great climate where many different types of plants can grow and thrive. That means there are several choices for you to consider when looking at installing new landscaping or renovating your existing landscaping beds. At Three Seasons, we can supply or install plants for your landscaping needs.
Here is a guide to commonly used perennials in our area so that you can read through and choose which perennials you’d like to use for your Florida yard.
Perennials are plants that will live for at least two growing seasons, but often they will live much longer than that. They are a good choice for your landscaping because they are a lasting investment. Annual plants will only live for one growing season and you have to replant them more often.
A great way to add color to your yard is to plant flowering shrubs. These shrubs can grow for years if they are treated with the right fertilizer and pest control practices....
Choosing a local nursery is a great way to support local business, and to buy locally grown plants that are adapted to our climate and conditions. Also, many plants for sale at big box stores are shipped from out of state and can suffer damage along the way, leading to unhealthy growth and even death.
Our huge selection, knowledgeable staff, and healthier locally grown plants make a trip to our nursery a better overall choice than a visit to a corporate retailer.
Most of the corporate “big box stores” sell thousands of items, and have a smaller “garden” section with minimal plant choices. Sure, they may look good on the shelf or pallet, but they often endure long shipping processes that can lead to a decline in plant health.
Our local nursery is dedicated to nurturing and growing a wide variety of locally grown plants that are already accustomed to our conditions. Our inventory is much larger than the one or two aisles you will browse at a national retail chain, giving you a better selection for choices, sizes, and plant species.

Bromeliads are one of the most popular plants used indoors and outdoors in central Florida communities such as Palmetto, Parrish, and Bradenton. These tropical plants love environments of high humidity and temperatures that hang in the 70-80°F on a normal basis.
Bromeliads come in a variety of colors, require little maintenance, and are the perfect accent or focal point for your landscaping.
One of the best things about bromeliads is their rainbow of colors. They can range from having bright pink centers to all red leaves and striped foliage. Bromeliads come in a variety of species that are frequently planted in the ground on both commercial and residential properties, including:
You can find many of these species, and more, available at garden centers, such as Three Seasons's local Palmetto, Florida nursery, where you can buy native plants, get landscaping design assistance, and installation services.

Lawns are one of the places on your property that see the most usage, whether they are commercial or residential. Residential property lawns are where kids and pets play, families have friends over to grill out, and parents go to relax on a nice spring morning. Commercial properties like golf courses and tennis courts provide places for recreation.
Since lawns have so much usage and foot traffic, property owners may want to consider the pros and cons of using artificial turf and real grass.
Artificial turf was invented in the mid-1960s for domed athletic fields, as they didn’t receive enough sunlight to keep real grass growing. Since then, artificial turf has evolved and presents many different options for both residential and commercial use. The material is made from plastics and some is also made from recycled materials.
