  1. I am interested in getting a list of Florida-Friendly Landscaping companies in the Volusia County area (Deland/Deltona/Debary would be closest). I am purchasing an 1 acre lot in Debary and would like the new construction homestead to have a wildflower/meadow like lawn (i.e. no St. Augustine grass). The house will be built in 2019. P.S. the home builder will be Gallery Homes of Deland.
