Exterior Pest Management
The landscape crew provides exterior pest control and disease management in turf, trees and shrubs. We do this during the growing season only if the problem becomes too difficult to manage using natural, environmental-friendly methods.
Interior pest control is overseen by Custodial Services.
Scheduled Grounds Maintenance
The landscaping crew cares for approximately 350 acres of turf and landscape planting beds on campus. We also plant, fertilize, aerate, and mow grass during the spring, summer, and fall.
Each year, this crew grows, plants, and maintains approximately 20,000 annual plants and flowers, which contribute to an array of color and beauty on campus.
During winter months, the landscape crew is responsible for keeping approximately 25 miles of sidewalks on campus free from snow and ice. We also provide parking lot and campus roadway sweeping and inlet cleaning.
