MyTennessee awards homeowners and businesses for conscientious, creek-friendly landscaping practices.
What does a creek-friendly yard look like?
Creek-friendly yards capture and retain stormwater during rain events, as well as create habitat for native plants and pollinators. The addition of green infrastructure features like rain gardens, rain barrels, and natural buffers provide many benefits to you, your neighbors, and your environment! Sustainable choices in your landscaping practices can keep polluted water our of creeks and streams, reduce the chances of flooding for those downstream, enrich your soil, and provide habitat for native species.
