"If you can't mow it, don't grow it!"

Visitors to the UBC Botanical Garden will probably recognize Tom right away. He has been with the garden for quite a while and works hard to keep all of the turf areas looking terrific. Tom certainly has a passion for his work. I'm not sure if his motto fits with the garden's collections policy, but it always makes me laugh when he says it.
