Seattle University's Grounds Department has been a leader in sustainable landscape management practices since 1986. The Grounds staff is committed to steward an environmentally friendly campus that provides educational opportunities for students, that functions as an urban wildlife sanctuary, and that serves as a safe and inviting space for the campus and our surrounding community.

Would you like to know more about our landscapes and how we maintain them? We offer tours throughout the year, and would be happy to set one up for your group. Tours can highlight the history of the SU landscape, the sustainable practices we use in our pesticide-free maintenance program, or our in-house compost operation. We can customize a tour around your interests and can assist you in visiting any of our award-winning specialized gardens on campus. Email Janice Murphy or David Clausen.
