@Yogi. Does your yard get flooded at all during heavy raining season?

I have a couple low spots that had standing water for about 24 hours during this past very rainy, rainy season. However, if I would dig down 18 inches I would hit the saturation point.

In my opinion, avocado trees (as well as plenty of other fruit trees) should be mounded if you live in Golden Gate Estates as they HATE having wet feet.

@The Yogi. I've thought about moving to Golden Gate Estates , I am also into gardening but I've lost a few mounded avocado trees in the past due to standing water . I don't know much about the area . Glad to hear that your avocado trees are thriving in your area.

Plant banana trees and sugarcane. It grows well in that area and provides not only a tropical look and feel, but also a natural screen-type barrier for privacy.

Bummer on the lost avocados Maureen

How old were they and how high were they mounded?

Golden Gate Estates is great except for the mosquito control spraying. But that's all of Collier County.

Wow Serious flooding or do you think their roots just got far enough down where the mounding didn't matter and they got a fungal infection?

I lost them right after tropical storm Fay. The mounding didn't help.
