They prolly tried to put one over on the hotel. We don't use fescue down here but I asume the price is higher. Ouch!! That had to hurt. They prolly already had the job bid too low.

When I lived in Lansing MI, landscaped company installed irrigation system and sod at the bank I used. The sod was put down on Friday. Monday it was mostly dead and shrunk. Somebody forgot to turn on irrigation clock. They resodded one week later. Following week same thing happened. Sprinklers didn't come on and sod died. The third time around they got it right. They did develop an algae problem after the third sodding because they were over watering.

Hey Earthworker. I lived there for three years, in Holt. Fortunately my wife got a job in Madison. It was kind of depressing, even more so this summer when there will be 5000 unemployed GM workers on the streets.
