Grounds Maintenance

Each school is responsible for maintaining campus grounds whether that is through the custodian or a lawn care company. Normally custodial personnel are responsible for the area closest to the building itself. This includes removing grass from flowerbeds or around shrubs and trimming grass along sidewalks and drives.

Athletic fields are normally the responsibility of the athletic department.

Roundup or any other type grass or weed killer will only be used on Stanly County Public Schools property by those personnel that have obtained a NC Department of Agriculture Ornamental and Turf Pesticide license. Incorporating the application of herbicides in your lawn care contract is a good way to meet this need.

The use of herbicides should be kept to a minimum.  The control of weeds and unwanted grasses should be handled by physical removal and the use of weed eaters when at all possible.
