Drought Garden

Have you ever noticed that the gardens on campus change with the seasons?

The colors change as do the flowers so that there is always color, from the fall pansies to the day lilies in the spring, to the red and white Impatiens in the summer.

Our horticulturalists make sure that we are never without full, vibrant color. These ladies and gentlemen manage and maintain the palette against which Longwood life takes place.

Do you notice the lawns as you hurry down Brock Commons on your way to a meeting or class? Have you ever wondered how Wheeler Mall stays so lush and green most of the year?

Landscaping and Grounds management's team of grounds experts meticulously mows these lawns, yes, but they also apply fertilizer and seed, aerate, and analyze problem areas. They correct the places where vehicles and equipment have bit into the lawns. They ensure that our ball fields remain green, lush, and clipped. And, they also keep a keen eye out for litter that missed a trash can.
