    Took these today while measuring out an 18 acre'd common area HOA. Also grabbed the riser picture from a residential job we were on this morning. Beautiful rotors on golf course too. Meter picture obviously hasnt met it's match with a mower yet.

    Oh sorry, giant mulch volcanoes that will end up giving their $20k Live Oaks crown rot, and die.

    Thanks. Don't see live oaks around here. Are they trying to cover "ugly roots" and overdoing it?

    Nope. Live Oaks rarely surface their roots. Just a bad practice that some landscapers have gotten into. The current vendor also has performed Crepe-Murder all on of the crepes. Makes them look so bad.

    This is one of the nicest, highest end HOAs in DFW. Or should be atleast.

    I wish I saw a few more 'mounds' around some of the plantings I encounter. Too many root balls set at grade in heavy soils.

    That golf course looks dormant and so does the turf.

    What's Hall of Shame about the truck? Or is it free advertising on LS?
