I thought I have seen Villa and son around the area. I might be wrong. I went to Disney last year and the lawns looked amazing.

Not sure about Disney, but has anyone in the Orlando Market noticed that you are not seeing Villa and Son as much so far this year? Seems like they were all around and then just vanished. Not sure if this could do with the Vally Crest and Nanak merge or what, but I am personally not seeing them as much.

Was just there this week place looks great. Did notice they spray painted the grass green at the entrance of magic kingdom around the flower mickey mouse sign. Not sure about the planting times but looked like a lot of fresh annuals had just been planted and alot of trees were blooming. The azaleas should probably pop in a week, they were just turning. I've never seen so many azaleas planted so close together to form large manicured mass plantings. Up north we kind of let them go a little more natural.

Villa and Son use to take care of the roadways around here. No more. Now USA Services does it. Have not seen Villa and Son like I did last year. You cant miss the blue and yellow. I cant remember what equipment Villa and Son used. John Deere has a posting that they switched over to Deere zero turns. Not sure about this.

Wait until the VC and Nanak merge finishes....it will be a sea of red.

Not sure that it is painted, but it is juiced to the max from what I can tell, the front areas are mowed with a 21 inch from what I could tell by the track marks.

azaleas are used in more formal form down here it seems than up north. You are correct on that.

The grass surely may have been painted. We used to do that regularly...especially before photo shoots. We'd paint the grass green (with a latex turf paint) and paint the mulch brown. It was so "pretty"... just the typical Dismal fakery.
