Disney World

Someone on here was talking about how well Disney keeps their landscape up. I want to know who does all the lawn fert on the property. What lawn company? The grass always looks perfect. Not a weed in sight. I would also like to know how to trim shrubs into different shapes(Mikey mouse ect)

All in house. It takes a knack at trimming topiaries. Some are started by making a metal frame and growing a shrub around it, some stand on their own and edward scissor hands shapes them. There are members here who have worked there and can likely give you better insight than I can.

I am not sure what posts you have been reading, But I have seen more posts complaining how Disney is no longer doing good landscape work.

As a former member of Disney Pest Management,, I know they are beginning to outsource more and more, many of those I still know who work there are worried about their jobs. Valley Crest has been getting a lot of the work. The days of Disney employees doing more then required because they love working there so much are gone,,so are a lot of the former perks that came with the job.
