As you drive south on route 17 from Brookgreen Gardens to the Litchfield/Pawleys Island area, you will see a transformation of the median from tall overgrown grass to a beautiful oasis of manicured lawns, beautiful palm trees and bushes.  These are maintained completely by the generosity of local home owner associations, businesses and generous residents who are dedicated to making the area one of the most beautiful in South Carolina.  This area runs from Sandy Island Road to Martin Luther King Road, some 3.2 miles.  When you first come to the Litchfield area, you are immediately struck how beautiful the median looks and how it sets this community apart from all the others.

Litchfield Beautification Corridor Background

In 2007, the Litchfield Corridor Beautification Committee (LCBC) was organized to maintain the medians and shoulders on Route 17 from Sandy Island Road south to Martin Luther King Road.  Without the LCBC and the generosity of local businesses and residents, this stretch of road would look like the majority of Route 17.  It's the beauty of the area that sets it a part. All maintenance on this area, which includes weekly mowing, trash pickup five days a week, new plantings, and care of the existing plants is done under the direction of the LCBC organization and is funded entirely by donations and grants.  In 2013 the LCBC started mowing the grass north of Sandy Island Road to meet the part that is maintained by Brookgreen Gardens. We believe this enhances the visual affect as you drive from Brookgreen towards Litchfield. This is done through the generosity of a $15,000 A Tax Grant.

Group beautifies area’s “front door”

…Georgetown County Councilman Jerry Oakley, who represents Litchfield Beach, applauded the committee’s efforts.

“That is our front door” Oakley said." That is the one stretch that I hear more comments about no matter where I am in the state about how attractive that strip is.”

---Sun News October 2008

IF it’s landscaped it must be Litchfield!

LBF Source of Donations


In 2015, private donations to the Litchfield Beautification Foundation

amounted to $89,341, our highest yearly contribution total yet. We sincerely thank all of you for your generosity in 2015, and look forward to expanding on this generous giving in 2016. Increased funding will be required in the future as we move forward to both maintain and expand our beautification efforts, particularly in light of recent reductions in Accommodations Tax grant availability. Financial independence remains a high priority for LBF. The chart below shows the percentage of supporter’s dollars by individual, businesses, and HOAs/POAs:

LBF Mission Statement……

To preserve and enhance the natural beauty and the quality of life for all residents, businesses, and visitors in our community.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!


During 2015, the medians of the Litchfield Corridor suffered numerous damaging incidents from careless drivers. The repair for these hit and run events costs the LBF over $7,500 in damages. If you ever witness one of the accidents, please contact Vonne Pannucci, 843-235-0455 or email vpann@sc.rr.com .
