Mowing and Landscaping Services

Mowing of our campus is done once a week during the summer hours and bi-weekly or as needed during the winter months.

Edging, trimming and pruning is done weekly and as needed around campus.

Blowing off building entrances and walkways is done daily from 5am to 8am.

Our campus utilizes an electronic irrigation management system. It uses local weather and environmental conditions to determine the amount of water needed to maintain the landscape. Irrigation schedules are developed to best utilize the available water pressure on campus, and to minimize runoff to conserve as much water as possible.

Should an outdoor event require irrigation to be shut off, please submit a work request to have irrigation shut off during and or prior to an event.
