Landscape and Grounds

Landscapes and Grounds

 

Our talented staff serves Southeastern students, faculty, and visitors by installing campus plantings and maintaining outdoor areas. Our work is highly visible.

Since potential students are decision-making consumers, we consciously recruit students through their first impressions of campus--our outdoor spaces, and we attempt to develop lasting impressions of place as students experience our campus through the seasons.

Our focus is to maintain Southeastern's campus as a clean and neat, park-like setting while installing and editing landscape elements to achieve responsible low-maintenance solutions and deliberate sustainability.

OP-9:  IPM Integrated pest Management

 The campus of Southeastern Lousiana University covers approximately 365 acres.  Excluding building spaces and athletic fields, approximately 280 acres are maintained with integrated pest management practices supervised by the Landscape Manager. 

Campus landscape maintenance is divided into five zones supervised by Horticulturists.  Each Horticulturist is responsible to scout for pest problems in his zone.  The Horticulturist may treat localized pest problems or report widespread problems to the Landscape Manager.  Long-term plant health and immediate visual aesthetics determine thresholds for pesticide application.  The Utility/IPM Horticultural Attendant implements campus-wide control measures as directed by the Landscape Manager. 

Insecticides with lowest environmental impact are preferred (ie. biologically-derived control for caterpillars).  Systemic insecticides may be used to control more challenging pest populations.  Baiting is preferred for control of fire ant colonies to limit exposure to non-target organisms.

Selective herbicides are applied to reduce weed germination in landscape beds.  Glyphosate is spot applied for post-emergence control of weeds in open bed areas and graveled or paved areas.  Selective herbicides are also applied to suppress problem weeds in turf areas. 

Fungicides are rarely used in landscape areas except on high-value plantings, such as annual color.  Landscape plantings that fail to thrive are replaced with plants adapted to the conditions of the location.  Irrigation schedules are monitored to reduce conditions that encourage fungal infection.

In the greenhouses for event greenery, higher standards of visual aesthetics dictate a stricter threshold for intervention.  Experience demonstrates that regular intervals of pesticide application are necessary in this controlled environment.

The campus landscape maintenance calendar may be found on the university website athttp://www.southeastern.edu/admin/phys_plant/landscape/landscapes/calendar/index.html

 

OP-18  Waste Diversion

 In the previous fiscal year (July 2016 to June 2017), Southeastern recycled approximately 89.27 Tons of cardboard, paper, plastics, metal, and used print cartridges.  Of this amount, 30.14 Tons was scrap metal collected in Property Control.

There is no total tonnage available for landfill waste.  The amount of 495.28 Tons was hauled to the landfill in roll-off dumpsters, but the waste collected in open-top dumpsters is not measured or reported by the waste-handling contractor.

One Recycling Operator collects recycling from campus locations.  Southeastern collects single-stream recycling (paper, plastics, metal cans) from departmental offices and from 24 outdoor recycling containers.  The operator also collects cardboard from Dining Services and other campus locations to be baled and sold.  Used print cartridges are collected, palletized, and shipped to a recycling company.

The campus also serves as a community drop-off location for small batches of recycling.
