Presentation Outline:
"Steve and Susan Turnipseed will show how they converted their turf grass lawn inside The Villages into a Florida-Friendly Landscape using native plants. All modifications were made with approval of the Architectural Review Committee, including removal of 5,000 square feet of grass. The changes resulted in a dramatic reduction in irrigation water usage, an increase in pollinators, and a dramatic visual transformation.

Note: Should there be an overflow crowd at the general meeting, the main presentation will be repeated at 3:00 pm in the same room
