Landscape is valuable component to any city. When properly designed, installed, and maintained landscaping adds identity, character, and value to our community. Selection of plant material is critical when designing for aesthetics, water efficiency, and safety.
We are committed to maintaining and increasing the overall aesthetic and environmental quality of our public, commercial and non-residential properties. The City's Landscape Inspector performs development for new construction projects and annually inspect properties for compliance with approved plans to ensure that vegetation has not been lost due to natural disaster or poor maintenance.
The City's Landscape professionals work with the community to improve deficiencies in the landscape as well as aide in plant placement and selection. We continuously strive to keep Pembroke Pines a place that our residents and business owners can be proud of.
The City of Pembroke Pines Landscape code is located in the Land Development Code that went into effect on April 26, 2021. Prior to adoption of the new Land Development Code, landscaping was located in chapter 153 of the City Code of Ordinances. Landscaping provide tremendous value to our community. Providing more than just aesthetic value, landscape increases the value of the built environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, conserving water, providing shade, reduce pollution and supporting wildlife.
The Pembroke Pines City Commission supports increasing the tree canopy throughout the City and is proud to be certified as a Tree City USA. In 2009, in accordance with the Broward League of Cities, Pembroke Pines passed a resolution to increase tree canopy by 30% by the year 2030.
