Keeping our turf clean 

Q: How do SU's gardeners keep the turf at Seattle University Park clean?

A: According to the February 2016 edition of Facilities News:

"As part of field maintenance, (Gardener) Peter Larson (pictured here) uses a Litterkat sports turf sweeper to clean SU Park. The sweeper removes debris without removing the small black pellets that fill the turf. There is also a tow behind magnet that collects objects like bobby pins, screws, nails, etc. that are hiding in the infill."
