Landscape & Turf Maintenance

There are two Landscape & Turf Maintenance Crews that care for over 1,150 acres of turf and landscape planting beds on campus.

Landscape Specialists on these crews plant, fertilize, aerate, and mow grass during the spring, summer and fall.

During the winter, the Landscape & Turf Maintenance Crews are also responsible for keeping the nearly 80 miles of sidewalks on campus free from snow and ice.

During the fall, the maintenance crews also clean up leaves on campus. Additionally, the maintenance crews change trash bags in the trash receptacles, clean ash urns, and pick-up litter on the exterior areas of campus.

Each year, the Grounds Department grows, plants, and maintains approximately 35,000 annual plants/flowers which provide a wide array of color on campus.
