Floral splendor on campus

We wanted the landscape to complement the great work that was happening inside the buildings.



Lawn Care and Plantings

The Grounds staff maintain all of the trees and shrubs on the main campus mall area and around the Student Development Complex. Activities include all trimming, pruning, planting and transplanting, fertilizing, watering, and removal of diseased or hazardous trees and shrubs.

Tech Gardens

The concerted and ambitious effort to plan and plant northern ecologically sustainable gardens at Michigan Tech began in 2008. Our former master gardener, Lynn Watson, with the help of students, developed more than one hundred garden sites. Lynn retired in the Fall of 2013 and in April 2014,  Quincy Higgins Arney took over the reins of master gardener.

Our gardens are stunning, but don't take our word for it. Walk through campus and enjoy the colors and aromas.
