Carolina Yards: Certify Your Yard

How to Certify Your Yard

Demonstrate your commitment to environmentally friendly landscaping by certifying your yard.

Yards are evaluated using a scorecard based on the 12 principles of the Carolina Yards Program. Each action taken earns "inches" towards certification.

By meeting the minimum requirements and achieving 36 inches, you can have a Certified Carolina Yard.

Homeowners obtaining Certified Carolina Yard status will receive a digital certificate and have the option to purchase other recognition items located in the Carolina Yards Store.
