One of the most obvious services that the District provides is landscape maintenance of all the common areas within Celebration. The District has a landscape maintenance contract with Juniper to provide these services, which include mowing and detailing turf areas, fertilizing trees and shrubs , replacing annuals quarterly, maintaining the common area irrigation system, controlling pests for all plant material and removing trash. The District has separate contracts to provide tree trimming services throughout the community: Florida Green trims the crepe myrtles, Enviro Tree trims the palms, and BrightView maintains the street trees.

Information For All Residents: The Board of Supervisors encourages all residents to take care when fertilizing, especially for properties that backup to ponds. The blooms of algae that the District experiences from time to time are the direct result of over-fertilizing and these nutrients getting into the ponds. Treating these algae mats and blooms is a constant maintenance issue for District staff, and we are limited in what we can use to treat those blooms pursuant to permits with other governmental agencies. If you have any questions about the types of fertilizer you are using or the quantity, please contact the District Office and speak with one of our field staff.
What You Can Do To Help
- Make sure all irrigation heads face away from ponds and wetland areas
- Aim irrigation heads so that water hits only plant materials, not the sidewalk or other impervious surfaces
- Repair broken irrigation heads right away
- Have your landscaping company perform a soils test to see what nutrients your lawn actually needs
- Because the reuse water is so rich in nitrogen and phosphorus already, consider using phosphate-free fertilizer on your turf and plant materials to avoid excessive nutrients making their way into the drainage system and ponds
