Landscape and Trees

The Right-of-Way Aesthetic and Assets Management Division (R.A.A.M.) provides landscape maintenance services to rights-of-way along Miami-Dade County roads. The work responsibilities include: grass mowing services along roadway medians and roadsides; tree trimming and pruning; and the collection and disposal of litter and debris.

Since South Florida's climate contributes to a relatively fast vegetation growth rate, mowing is performed 15 times per year to adequately maintain the aesthetic appearance of Miami-Dade County's main roadway corridors.

Additionally, the R.A.A.M. Division provides landscape maintenance services nice times per year to road sides located in the unincorporated areas of the County. Depending on the characteristics of the rights-of-way areas, these services are provided:

Basic Roadside Safety Mowing -- the mowing of a four- to six-foot-wide motorist safety shoulder strip next to the edge of the roadway.

Enhanced Roadside Safety Mowing -- mowing the full width of the public right-of-way area where trees have been planted by the County, maintaining tree rings and mowing around utilities, such as, fire hydrants, utility poles, etc. This enhanced level of service also includes the trimming of tree limbs and branches, and litter pickup and disposal services.

Metrorail/Metromover Landscape Maintenance Services -- The R.A.A.M. Division also provides full landscape maintenance services to all Metrorail/Metromover stations, line sections and Busway rights-of-way 24 times per year.
