Landscaping and Plants

Landscaping and gardening practices collectively significantly contribute to (or, if not pursued using sustainable practices, present risks to) Carrboro's green infrastructure.  The Town's Public Works Department is responsible for landscaping for Town managed lands, including parks, street right-of-ways, and facilities.  The links provided below are potentially helpful resources in considering landscaping and planting.  Soil quality is extremely important, as aptly stated by Jared R. McKinley:  "The operative activity for gardeners should not be "feeding plants," but rather encouraging a healthy soil ecosystem in which plants will naturally thrive."
