You would be amazed at what's backstage at EPCOT, massive amounts of trucks and toro mowers. All the nice potted topiaries you see out front have doubles just as nice just in case stored out back. What looked like a completely stocked and ready to go nursery, composting area and dump for debis.

I know when I was there a few years back it sure looked like a hack job on what I saw in the park. Maybe it was newbies, but that would be something else to do.

Yeah, I have heard that disney has started subcontracting stuff out to them instead of doing it in house. But I have also heard Valley Crest does not do the greatest job either, maybe they only really care about taking care of their BIG clients and don't care as much in the residential that they do?

DisneyLand, Anaheim Ca.,,,pretty much is all done by Valley Crest so same to say, Disney Corp sub contracted to them .

With that said, if you pay attention at least here in the park, you will see freshly laid sod to fix a dying spot.

Many doubles for the plants that are there. It's quite incredible.

Then at newest theme park...CA Adventures.....oh my gosh the miles and miles of 1/4" tubing for the potted plants.

Was at Disney World last March and stayed at one of their resorts. They had a large crew show up and sod cut some damaged areas and reinstalled new sod. They trimmed all the bushes up and mowed the lawns with a Toro Grandstand with a mulch kit installed. I was surprised they ran the mower with guest's all around . They performed the work around 10-11 ish in the AM . They got in and out quickly!!!!
