Changes included: Phosphorous & Nitrogen Summer Application Ban which bans application of phosphorous & nitrogen from June through September to address increased runoff potential during the rainy season Increasing the application setback from water bodies from 10’ to 15’ to provide additional buffer for fertilizer runoff and a voluntary low maintenance zone extended to 15’ Slow release Nitrogen content requirement for 50% slow release content to address leaching potential The city adopted Florida Friendly Landscaping requirements some years back. The revision by the county has applied more stringent requirements.
