Landscape and Grounds

Jupiter Grounds

       As this campus is much newer than the Boca Raton campus, first established in the late 1990's, the architecture and plant selection differ from the older Boca Raton location. First and foremost is that the grass is Bahia as opposed to the St. Augustine that is primary in Boca Raton. Hedges and trees also differ in style than those found on the Boca campus.

      Services provided on this campus, include mowing, fertilization, herbicide control, irrigation service and minor tree work that includes pruning palms and lifting the branches of the young hardwood trees. As necessary, a contractor also bush hogs open fields, installs new plants and provides generally all grounds related services.

      The Jupiter campus irrigation system is already automated like that which is beginning to occur in Boca Raton. Water rationing has been in place in Jupiter for years so this computerized control of the irrigation system assures that little water is wasted. Computer monitoring of the system includes alarms and graphic information advising where excess water is being used, thereby highlighting where problems exist in the irrigation system. Repairs can then be made in a timely manner.
