Flowers Turf and Pest Management has been serving Satellite Beach FL for decades and we love helping the amazing people in this city have the lawns and landscaping they can be proud of. Satellite Beach is a coastal city in Brevard County and is on the eastern side of Florida. Satellite Beach is 4.3 square miles in size, however, a third of the city is considered water. This city finds itself between Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean. Satellite Beach is about 9 miles from Melbourne and about 70 miles from Orlando. The 10,000 citizens of Satellite Beach enjoy warm and beautiful weather almost year-round with ample opportunity to spend time at the beaches.
Satellite Beach’s history dates back to the 1950’s when the first permanent home was built in this area. It was 1951 when that single home was constructed and, five years later, only 17 homes were established in Satellite Beach. The name of the city has to do with its proximity to Cape Canaveral and the space program. As the space program took off over the years, many of men and women who worked for the agency settled down in Satellite Beach and the name seemed to fit perfectly. Over the years the palmettos and oak scrub were removed and the swamps were dredged to make room for development.
One of the things we love about Satellite Beach is the flourishing flora and fauna, and how close we can feel with the environment when we work here. With the Indian River Lagoon nearby, we know the importance of maintaining this precious waterway and our company has committed to adhering to the strict rules set forth to reduce the algae bloom and help save the lagoon. The plants and trees are a unique mixture of temperature and tropical climate species; this is due to the island climate where Satellite Beach is located along with the being north enough to support more temperate climate plants. Flowers Turf and Pest Management has a long history in managing a variety of plants so you can count on us to help your foliage thrive. We have a dedicated ornamental plants department with a crew well-trained and equipped to take care of your trees, shrubs and bushes. We do not take a blanket approach to tree and shrub care in Satellite Beach, we identify and provide the maximum amount of fertilization needed and provide the best kind of care tailored to the specific plants found at your home.
The wildlife and marine life in and around Satellite Beach is incredible. North Atlantic Whales and West Indian Manatees are frequent sights to be seen and Samsons Island Nature Park, a 12-acre park, is dedicated to the preservation of birds and mammals including gopher tortoises and scrub jays. With help from the Florida Institute of Technology, Satellite Beach is working to create sustainable maintenance programs to keep the wildlife flourishing.
Pelican Beach Park is the ideal spot to hang out and enjoy being near the water. With a playground, volleyball court, pavilions and grills, Pelican Beach Park is a great place to take the family on the weekends. Gemini Beach Park is another park in Satellite Beach.
