Flowers Turf and Pest Management has been servicing Indialantic with lawn care, tree and shrub care, and pest management for decades. Located just north of Melbourne Beach and south of Indian Harbor Beach, Indialantic finds itself with two coastal shores and a lot of beautiful property. With the Atlantic Ocean to the east and the Indian River to the west, the residents of Indialantic are always assured a breathtaking view of the water. Indialantic is just 1.3 square miles in size and has a population of approximately 2,700 residents. Located in Brevard County and considered part of the Palm Bay–Melbourne–Titusville, FL Metropolitan Area, Indialantic has a lot going for its citizens including a thriving economy.
The history of Indialantic can be traced back to 1919 when one of the first settlers in the area built a wooden bridge across the Indian River connecting this community with Melbourne. Tourism was and always has been a major economic force in the area. The first hotel was established in the 1920’s and was soon followed up by a casino. By the 1950’s the town was officially incorporated as Indialantic-by-the-Sea. It still technically maintains that name but it is rarely used.
Students living in Indialantic are educated through the Brevard Public Schools. This school district spans across the entirety of Brevard County and educates over 74,000 students; less than 1,000 come from Indialantic though. There are also 9,500 personnel employed in the school district with 5,000 of those teachers at 82 schools. Just 2 of those 82 schools are located in Indialantic. They are:
● Indialantic Elementary
● Hoover Middle School
Indialantic hosts a few annual events which draw in residents from the nearby communities. These events are:
● Indialantic Boardwalk Sprint Distance Triathlon in June
● Craft Show in July
● Witch Way - A 5k run held every October
● Halloween Party in October
There are many benefits to living on the barrier island separating the Indian River from the Atlantic Ocean. The beautiful tropical weather lends itself to vibrant trees and plants often not found this far north. By being as north as Indialantic is though, we also have temperate climate plants. This unique combination of tropical climate and temperate climate plants can sometimes make it difficult to maximize the health of your landscaping. With Flowers Turf and Pest Management, we do not take a blanket approach to ornamental care. Our highly-educated and skilled tree and shrub specialists will identify the plants on your property and create a customized approach to ensuring your landscaping thrives all year long. With an on-call horticultural from the University of Florida, we will always be able to solve any issues you may be experiencing and provide the highest level of service.
As a thriving beach community, you will almost always spot a surfer out riding the waves, beachgoers working on their tans and folks riding their bikes and walking throughout the community. The boutique shops and local restaurants situated along 5th Avenue are perfect for enjoying a weekend afternoon or evening out. If you want to head out into Melbourne, take the Melbourne Causeway over the water and you will be there in minutes to check out the farmers market or dine at one of the many great restaurants in their downtown area.
Regardless of the size of your property, you can trust Flowers Turf and Pest Management to keep your yard looking beautiful. Our dedicated turf management division will ensure your grass is lush and green and the technicians in our pest management division will keep the invasive insects from damaging the plants on your property. We can even help keep pests from entering your Indialantic home and provide rodent control if a squirrel, raccoon, mouse or rat tries to hunker down in your house.
As a family-owned and operated company, Flowers Turf and Pest Management is proud to work with folks in the community to give them the lawn and landscaping that adds curb appeal and showcases the overall beauty of their home.
