Grounds Maintenance Cost Report.
Joice, Donald K.
A grounds maintenance study was accomplished over the period of March 1965 through February 1966 to--(1) determine current grounds maintenance cost distribution; (2) provide basis for future grounds maintenance budgeting, and (3) provide basic data by which future landscape project designs can be developed to project or reduce maintenance costs. The data is charted for maintenance cost recapitulation by campus zones. Separate cost categories shown are labor, supply and expense, equipment and facilities, total cost per zone per year, and total cost per acre per year. For each campus zone further breakdowns are made by type of ground cover (i.e. grass, shrubs, sealed surface, etc) and by functional use (parking and improved areas). Some significant conclusions regarding maintenance costs are listed. (HH)
