Grounds

We work to create an inspiring outdoor setting for all who visit BYU. With a standard of excellence supporting every endeavor, we accept Brigham Young’s challenge to “render the earth so pleasant that when you look upon your labors you may do so with pleasure, and that angels may delight to come and visit your beautiful locations.”

Grounds has five separate shops of specialization, each of which work diligently to make campus, campus housing, the Provo Temple, and the MTC neat, clean, and beautiful: Gardening Maintenance, Landscape Specialty, Plant & Floral, Recycling, and Site Development.

Plant & Floral

Plant & Floral maintains BYU's greenhouse, as well as providing indoor plants and florals for campus events. We also design and install plants for office spaces and common areas on campus. During the Christmas season, poinsettias may be ordered through Plant & Floral by submitting a poinsettia request form.

Recycling

Recycling makes it possible for campus to recycle everyday items, such as office paper, newspaper, cardboard, plastic bottles, aluminum cans, and industrial scrap metal. We will also take any old books or office papers that need to be discarded during an office move.

Site Development

Site Development assists with construction projects and the initial installation of landscape projects on campus. We install, repair, and maintain sprinkler systems, hardscapes, storm & sewer drains, streets, parking lots, and fencing. We also assist with snow removal from campus streets and parking lots.
