Louisiana Campus Updates


VCOM-Louisiana is honored to have been named Beautiful Business of the Month by the Monroe Chamber of Commerce

The campus grounds, which feature a variety of colorful trees, shrubs and flowers, are the result of many hours of upkeep each week. Micheal Colvin and his crew from All-Star Lawn Care spend upwards of 24 hours each week mowing, weed eating, weeding and maintaining the parking lot.

As expected, a large part of the work is keeping the grass mowed. Seventy-five to eighty percent of the grounds are push mowed, which takes nearly 12 hours. “There are a bunch of small places where a big mower turning around just wouldn’t look good,” said Colvin. Using a push mower allows his team to give VCOM-Louisiana the beautiful freshly mowed “lined” look that adds to its beauty.

Colvin gives credit for the lush lawn and beautiful foliage to Petey Griggs Irrigation, which maintains the College’s 24-hour sprinkler system. Of particular note is that the sprinkler system utilizes water from the bayou to irrigate the grounds.
