April is “Keep America Beautiful Month” and Clemson's Carolina Yards program is another exceptional Extension program offering education and resources for homeowners. Carolina Yards seeks to work with yard owners, groundskeepers and landscapers in creating healthy, watershed-friendly landscapes. Creating a balance between nature and a modified landscape (typical yard) is no easy task. Using science and lessons learned from hundreds of years of combined experiences, the Carolina Yards program uses simple and effective principles and actions to help guide the yard owner towards a low maintenance and low environmental impact yard.
