Went on vacation a few days and ended up in some of the nicer parts of Atlanta (Buckhead). I've been in Atlanta probably dozens of times but never really paid much attention to the grass and landscaping. I was surprised by how shoddy the work(and turf) on some of the more expensive banks and hotels was. The grass (mostly Bermuda I guess) was patchy, brown spots, bare spots, and the mowers had cut into the turf. Many places looked like the sod had been laid over some very bumpy uneven ground. Anyway the weed infested pasture here looks better mowed, at least it's green. I was just really shocked that the hotels and banks worth probably from the 10's of millions to 100's of millions looked so shabby. Mainly the grass which is irrigated but you could tell it was not cut with much care and there seemed to be some fescue in some area's that looked better than the Bermuda. Anyway I took some long walks and was paying special attention to such things. On the other hand the trees, bushes and crape myrtle were done very well. Most trees were trimmed branchless fairly high so they will eventually will have a nice canopy and the crape myrtles looked great. Much nicer than they look here 250 miles north where they are more like a bush than a tree.. Anyway it's hard to believe you can get away with scalping, brown grass, weeds, bare spots, etc on such expensive properties. As a whole everything looks nice and most people never notice. Like I said these skyscrapers, hotels, etc are no doubt worth in the 100's of millions on down to a few million. Never took the time in my younger days to pay attention to such things because I was not in the lawn care business but it was nice to see how things were done there. I'm not slamming Atlanta, great place, just surprised you can get by with grass in such bad condition on such prestigious real estate.
