  • Mowing, weed eating and trimming all campus turfgrass.
  • NCAA and Rec Sports field care
  • Irrigation design, installation, and repair
  • Tree and shrub trimming
  • General campus cleaning
  • Weed, insect, and mud control

Delivery Charge

Work requests for plants will need to be submitted one week before the requested delivery date. Plants requested less than 7 days before the event are NOT guaranteed to be available as rentals are first come first served.

In the work request, please state the type of plant needed, quantity desired, date of delivery and date of pickup as well as any plans/layouts for plant placement.

Orders that require placement of plants per a plan will be charged on an hourly basis of $21/hr per worker for labor.

Orders without a plan will be simply placed inside the room and the renting entity will be required to place the plants. If delivery staff is asked or needed to place the plants at the last minute, then a charge of $30 per worker hour will be incurred by the renting entity for the time spent arranging the rentals.
