NCSU Extension has developed a comprehensive plan to help homeowners develop an environmentally responsible landscaping plan–the Low Impact Homeowner.

A  12-page booklet from the NC Coastal Federation, specifically for Brunswick County, is available to help you as a homeowner  improve our water quality: Read and download a copy here of SmartYards for Brunswick County

Thinking about rain barrels or rain gardens? Check out this information packet of  how to deal with storm water runoff including plants that tolerate wet bottoms.

More detailed information from NCSU Extension  on rain garden construction as well as information on how to find the perfect location.

You’ll need plants for your rain garden that will  thrive in our climate and soils and of course are native. Check out this list for Brunswick County.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]
