Grounds and landscaping services are provided through an outsourced vendor contract. The outsourced vendors are selected for multi-year contracts based upon qualifications, experience, and the ability to provide services, appropriate staffing levels, and overall value to USF Sarasota-Manatee. Facilities Planning and Management’s Operations Division staff oversee the performance of the outsourced vendors and are responsible to ensure the quality of services and compliance with the vendor contracts.

Artistree Landscape Maintenance & Design is the current USF Sarasota-Manatee Grounds and Landscaping Services provider.
