The Q&A Archives: First time in the yard

Question: Third time home buyer but first time I've wanted to work in the yard and have no idea where to begin. Small yard mostly steep hill in tropical gulf coast Florida! What grows best tree and plant wise? What's the best treatment to keep the lawn growing and green? What do you suggest to kill ants outdoors and indoors? Mainly fire ants outdoors. We enjoy tropical plants too. Thank you!
