Head of grounds department prepares to hang up his tools

Students arriving on UGA's campus in the 1970s found a somewhat beleaguered landscape: bare, eroding clay banks along Lumpkin Street, old chairs and beer coolers strewn in Tanyard Branch, poorly defined walkways and little sense of a pedestrian connection between North and South campuses. The landscape needed someone who understood that this is a campus for people in a naturally beautiful Piedmont setting. 

Gordon Chappell, former director of the grounds department, set the stage for a more healthy and invigorated campus in the 1980s, and, along with design manager David Hale, inspired Dexter Adams in his work. Current director of the grounds department, Adams will retire Sept. 30 after 31 years on campus.
