Sport Grounds Maintenance (HORT)
 
  LTC
Landscapers and Groundskeepers are incorporated into the career cluster of agriculture, food, and natural resources. Landscapers and groundskeepers plant and take care of flowers, lawns, shrubs, and trees. Groundskeepers do routine or special types of maintenance for athletic fields, golf courses, cemetery grounds, and park and recreational facilities. These individuals are often classified as either grounds managers or grounds maintenance personnel. They maintain a variety of facilities including athletic fields, golf courses, cemeteries, university campuses, and parks. Grounds managers have a strong knowledge of plants, landscape design, pest management, irrigation, and erosion control and have supervisory duties. Groundskeepers in parks and recreation facilities care for plants, maintain playgrounds and athletic fields, clean buildings, and pick up litter. Other tasks performed by landscapers and groundskeepers include: sod laying, mowing, trimming, planting, watering, fertilizing, digging, raking, sprinkler installation, and installation of mortarless segmental concrete masonry wall units.
