East Texas Medical Center RHS

Figured I would go ahead and start my own thread as well. Here's a few pictures of one of our locations that was opened September 2009.

And a few more still...

Once I took the time to figure out how to post, I have some catching up to do.

These are pictures of some tree transplants we did to remove some 7-8" trees out of what would soon become a construction site. They were placed at another campus where we had been loosing some trees following it's recent construction. You can see just how close you can get to class 200 with a big john tree transplanter without damaging the pipe at all. Also, how a municipality will leave try and leave your front yard after doing some utilities work. We will be there tomorrow. Hope they have it slick as a duck's back and sodded. And thought I would share what the atrium looks like at Christmas time.

Equipment

Here's a picture or two of the equipment purchased to be used on the 5 hospitals and 7 clinics we take care of. The pictures i minus a few handhelds. We also picked up a kombi power head with articulating hedge trimmer, handheld blower/shreddervac and straight shaft edger.

Looks good, is that Celebration Bermuda? The sign with the the stones surrounding it - spray some roundup around rocks and put an edge around that bed, it would look to notch! Love the equipment setup!

Thanks for the tip. None of my campuses are celebration the one with the fountain and flagpoles in the picture is 2.5yr sodded common. I wish several of my campuses were.

I purchased a few palets to cover over some places that we had to remove a few dead trees (from construction damage) and totally loved it. Keeps a real tight texture and stays realy thick. I chose it for those ground stump places because it is supposed to have some degree of shade tolerance. I was thoroughly impressed with how it handles in the full sun or partial shade and how it handled last year horrific heat and drought here in Texas. I am going to try and spec it on future projects if budget allows for it. I don't remember a tremendous difference in price between common and celebration from my source.

I have been really impressed with it so far. Smooth levers, cut is really good quality and it has plenty of power. I think they could improve them with a 7iron deck instead of the welded 7ga deck it has. One of my hands and I both really enjoy using it.

Post a picture of your truck...its pretty cool.
Also, I didn't know you where a LI...how long have you been one? Also tell me a little more about what degrees/certifications/licenses and such you have and how they have been beneficial.
The gilmer campus is looking better. Saw a few more things that needed fixing up but after this week I have forgotten. Overall it looks much better.
