There is a rhythm to planting hundreds of flowers in the traffic circle at Chapel Drive.

.

One person works ahead of the pack, breaking purple scaevola plants free from flats and lining them in neat rows along mulch. Others dig holes, with their gloved hands or a trowel, and drop the plants in, covering the roots with soil in quick precision.

.

Dig. Drop. Cover. Repeat.

.

The eight-person Duke horticulture team works against the clock, planting thousands of flowers before visitors flood campus for commencement weekend beginning May 13. They tackle the Chapel Drive corridor first, where the flowery focal points are the traffic circle and the Duke University Road entrance.

.

When someone turns into Chapel Drive here, the first thing theyre going to notice are our flower beds, said Andy Currin, Dukes assistant superintendent for landscape services. Were always their first impression, and that means a lot.

.

But the planting doesnt stop after graduation. In total, 27,000 flowers will be planted across the university and medical campuses for the summer season, a job that wraps up by mid-June and takes about 1,200 staff hours to complete, according to the Duke Facilities Management Department.

.

The horticulture team plants flowers during May and June and again in October and November. They are pulling up hardy pansies and snapdragons that withstand winter temperatures, spreading new mulch in flowerbeds and constantly watering.

.

Terrence Williams, a senior grounds equipment operator who has worked for 15 years with the horticulture team, said his job requires a lot of traveling across campus, from East Campus to the Duke Hospital courtyard and the front of Cameron Indoor Stadium. His team also plants at the School of Nursing, Fuqua School of Business, School of Law and other locations.
