The grounds crew is responsible for the landscape maintenance of the 55-acre campus, which includes maintaining sprinkler systems, lawn and tree care, planting shrubs and flowers, applying lawn chemicals etc. The crew also makes sure the outside campus areas and walkways are clean and unobstructed.
The grounds crew performs furniture moves and reconfigurations as well as a variety of other billable work projects for campus entities.
The grounds crew is responsible for campus snow removal beyond what is performed by the custodial staff. During snow season, snow removal is top priority and other work requests and tasks are done only as time permits.
The majority of the grounds maintenance activities occur during business hours Monday through Saturday. Every attempt is made to minimize the impact of noisy jobs and to be as discrete as possible.
