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.

What people are saying

"The private - public partnership between the Litchfield Corridor Beautification Committee and governmental entities on behalf of our community has set a precedence for cooperation and excellence. The Highway 17 beautification project is recognized and admired by tourists, business and locals. Our entire area has benefited by the "pride of  community" of this project."

Vida Miller, Former State Representative

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!
