Together, they were able to solve a major landscaping issue and provide an environmental and economical advantage by installing SYNLawn® and removing the grass around the building. SYNBermuda 200 was installed in two ground level planters in front of the Civil Courthouse in Downtown Houston on Caroline Street. These planters were not only an eyesore, but they created numerous complications relating to the growth of healthy grass and plants. As a result, they presented an ongoing maintenance issue for the city.

Thanks to SYNLawn®, visitors are enjoying the benefits of the beautiful new artificial grass and the area is no longer problematic to the city. The City of Houston will be able to reduce its maintenance costs in that area as they no longer need to mow, water, weed, or use chemicals on the new SYNLawn®. Way to go City of Houston for promoting a greener, more economical way to landscape.

In an effort to continuously enhance its guest experience, maximize the comfortable year-round Texas Hill Country climate, and complement the scenic setting on Lake LBJ, Horseshoe Bay Resort offers a new outdoor venue with three distinct concepts: the Palm Lawn, Palm Patio, and Palm Lounge. An extension of the popular Lantana Bar and Patio, the space includes a candle-lit cocktail lounge featuring a cocktail and bottle service menu, and an intimate location ideal for corporate and social events.

“Our team envisioned and created these new venues with our guests’ needs in mind, so they can enjoy an upscale environment that’s available from morning through evening, for a variety of uses,” said Douglas Jaffe, III, chief executive officer. “We consider the Palm Lawn, Palm Patio and Palm Lounge destinations that provide an escape within the resort. The timing of their unveiling, to coincide with fantastic Texas fall weather, is an added bonus.”

The overall vicinity features modern, yet comfortable design, including rattan couches; chairs and tables with plush brown cushions; oversized contemporary white lamps; cooling ceiling fans; richly colored espresso and cream draperies; and palm tree accents throughout.

The Palm Lawn and Patio can be closed off to create an intimate environment for meetings and special events. From receptions under the starlit sky with twinkling candlelight and a glowing fire, to a break-out session on the patio with scenic surroundings, the new space offers even more options for planning a memorable experience at Horseshoe Bay Resort:

Palm Lawn: The lush green landscaping offers views of the resort’s signature water fountains and features an inviting fire pit nestled between two large palm trees. With ample seating and beverage service, the Palm Lawn is perfect to mingle with other guests, or simply unwind. A feature of the lawn area is synthetic grass by SYNLawn® the industry leader in artificial surfaces. Designed and installed by Terry Strickland of Texas-based Strickly Green Grass, LLC, the artificial grass creates more sustainable landscaping and a perfectly-manicured look.

Palm Patio: Set beneath Southwestern-style stone columns and archways, visitors can have peace and quiet in this shaded area while overlooking the sprawling lawn. Whether reading the morning paper over a cup of coffee, or meeting with friends for an afternoon drink, the patio is a tranquil daytime retreat, with beverage service available.

Palm Lounge: On weekend nights, the Palm Lawn and Patio transform into a sophisticated outdoor lounge for adults. Evenings at the Palm Lounge will be a haven of relaxed fun, highlighted by expertly-crafted cocktails and a bottle service menu. Soft and dim lighting will complement candlelit lanterns of varying sizes scattered on the floor and walls. The lounge will be open on Friday and Saturday evenings from 7:00 p.m. – 12:00 a.m.
