Carolina Yards

Clemson's Carolina Yards program 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. 

The Carolina Yards program also seeks to work with commercial growers, nurseries and landscape architects in utilizing these principles at the start of each landscaping project to minimize environmental impact and benefit the yard owner for years to come.
