So everyone wonders, how do they do it? Ole Miss landscapers work very hard to keep the 10 acres beautiful and green.

"We use special Bermuda green grass for the grove, we keep it mowed and we have student organizations and teams to help clean after the games," said Sam Johnson the supervisor of UM landscaping.

Although after games when the grove looks a mess, the day after it is back looking majestic and green.

"It takes us about maybe 2 to 3 hours to clean after football games," said Sam Johnson

"It is pretty amazing how the grove seems to transform over night from ugly to nice," said Candace Alexander, 19.
