5 Reasons Your Campus Landscape Matters
Here's a Secret About Landscaping
When choosing the best way to care for your landscape, there is more to consider than making sure the grass gets mowed and the sidewalks are clear. From student safety to prospective student tours, what your landscape partner (or in-house crew) does ultimately impacts your bottom line. We have taken the guesswork out of these decisions with this list of reasons why landscape matters.

4. Increase Alumni Contributions
Landscapes with outdoor study spaces for students, and gathering spaces to meet friends are a key part of your culture. Create an on-campus experience students will treasure for a lifetime. A beautiful campus creates lasting memories that will in turn encourage Alumni contributions to preserve the experience for future generations.
5. Promote Sustainability
Today’s students are more focused than ever on the future of our planet. Nurture and support that with a landscape partner that is committed to using sustainable practices. From green roofs to electric equipment, from grass-cycling to water conservation efforts, trust your landscape to a company that knows the importance of reducing the effects our practices have on Earth.
A landscape partner should have comprehensive capabilities to streamline your landscape services and think strategically about the bigger picture for your property. They are more than just “mow, blow and go”. A good partner for the long-term will identify potential risks and suggest ways to mitigate them, as well as identifying opportunities to improve your property value by enhancing your outdoor environment.
To put it simply, if your landscaper is not working hard to make you and your property look good and your life easier, it might be time to shop around.
