Sustainable Landscaping Updates
April 2010

Green Team
This year the Sustainable Landscaping Subcommittee is working on some exciting projects:
1.  Sustainable lawn:  As many people seem to love their lawns (even with our best efforts to convince them otherwise!), we have decided to install a sustainable lawn.  Keeping in mind that no lawn is completely sustainable, we can do our best!  We've decided to install Pearl's Premium Grass Seed in the areas adjacent to the Science and Technology Buildings facing the Quad.  The seed is a mix of slow-growing native fescues, that are tolerant of a wide range of environmental conditions, require no fertilizing or watering once established, stay green longer during the year, and only need mowed two to three times per year. Check out these sites for more information:,
2.  Planting trees/shrubs:  We are hoping to replace some of the trees that were cut down for the security cameras or because they were dying (as many of you know, most of the trees planted on campus were planted with the plastic bags around the roots, which is why many trees on campus are dying).  We will have applied for funding.

There's more..., To see what other projects Sustainable Landscaping is working on, visit
