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.

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!

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.

    In 2007, the Litchfield Corridor Beautification Committee (LCBC) was organized to take over the landscaping of the medians and shoulders on Route 17 from Sandy Island Road south to Martin Luther King Road.  The Litchfield Company (TLC) funded the initial $250,000 effort in the 80’s and the Litchfield community became recognizably beautiful throughout the highway corridor. It was Foster McKissick, then president and founder of The Litchfield Company that had the vision for the Litchfield corridor.

    During the 90’s TLC provided the largest portion of the annual landscaping maintenance budget along with Litchfield-By-the-Sea Property Owners Association, Myrtle Beach National/Litchfield Beach and Golf Resort, and Willbrook Road Maintenance District.  By 2007 TLC was reorganizing, having sold its inventory of properties and the LCBC was formed by local residents.

    In 2013 we acquired a 501(c)(3), non-profit, tax deductible status and became the Litchfield Beautification Foundation.  We are committed to continuing the preservation and enhancement of the community’s welcoming appearance. In order to do that we rely on the generosity and community pride of local residents, HOA/POA organizations, businesses and Accommodation Tax Grants.  Our program consists of trash removal 7 days a week; mowing 3.8 miles of medians and shoulders from Sandy Island Road to Martin Luther King Rd: regular pruning of all shrubs and trees; seasonal maintenance and disease infestation treatments, pine straw applications, replacement of dead and damaged plant material, working with Georgetown County Stormwater Division to implement water conservation projects; and flag displays on patriotic holidays.

     If the LBF did not exist, the South Carolina DOT maintenance plan consists of mowing and grinding up trash ONLY 3 times PER YEAR.

     Please join your neighbors in donating to this grass roots effort to sustain a smart investment in our future and maintain our distinctive local identity.

A Letter From Our President

Thank you for visiting our website and experiencing the resort like atmosphere of Litchfield Beach. I am honored to be involved with the LBF board as its President. The Board is comprised of thirteen volunteers who have assumed the responsibility of insuring the beauty of our community via the median and shoulders of highway 17 from three tenths of a mile south of the entrance to Brookgreen Gardens to Martin Luther King Road (3.4 miles). The mission of the LBF is to maintain the area by mowing, trash pick-up, fertilizing, replacing damaged plants, trimming bushes and insect control – like caring for your own yard. This has been wholly accomplished through a public-private partnership. The Foundation is truly a great example of community involvement. We accomplish our mission with financial support from individual donations, business support, and HOAs. Approximately fifteen percent of the

budget comes from the Georgetown County Accommodation tax funds.

If you are interested in helping us continue to insure that we have such a beautiful entrance to our communities, please consider making a donation to our ongoing efforts. Donation information can be found on the website.

Thank you again for your interest in the work of the Foundation and learning more

about what “Your Gifts at Work” truly means.
