The mission of the campus grounds is to provide a safe and pleasant outdoor environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors through the maintenance of the campus grounds.
To Do List: September
- Plant Garden Mums (Chrysanthemums) - planting early in the season and watering regularly increases the chances that your mums will make it through the winter.
- Bulbs – order or purchase spring flowering bulbs (Daffodils, Tulips, Crocus). Garden Centers will have a better selection if you buy early.
- Broadleaf Weed Control – Fall is a GOOD time to control weeds. Perennial weeds translocate carbohydrates to their roots in the fall and will move systemic herbicides down also, killing the ENTIRE weed.
- Prepare Leaf Pickup Equipment – Leaf pickup season is just around the corner. Now is a good time to make sure everything works well and make new purchases if necessary.
