Keeping campus green and white

Spartan Employee Spotlight – Landscape Services

Care for the Michigan State University East Lansing campus’s outdoor spaces — representing more than 1,800 acres of developed green space with flower beds, grassy fields and pollinator gardens; roads and sidewalks; parking lots and ramps; and two golf courses — falls to the staff of Landscape Services, a department within Infrastructure Planning and Facilities.

Responsible for lawn maintenance, litter collection, snow removal, tree trimming and paved surface upkeep, the team ensures campus always looks its best and presents ample curb appeal for prospective students and faculty. Their work frequently creates the most sought-after locations for graduation photos of proud new alumni showing off their diplomas and academic regalia.
