Las Vegas, NV — The iconic Las Vegas Bellagio Resort and Casino recently took steps towards water conservation with a massive synthetic grass installation. With the help of BrightView Commercial Landscaping, SYNLawn Southern Nevada completed the project at the casino. Ken Jackson of SYNLawn Southern Nevada and Jessica Naylor with BrightView worked closely together to bring the project to life.
The Bellagio Resort and Casino is home to 4,000 rooms and spans 77 acres. The MGM-owned resort holds high standards for its ambiance due to its popularity. SYNLawn completed five high-profile sections of the resort, including the fountain, grand entry, and porte-cochere. The final installation resulted in 15,000 square feet of made-to-order turf installed.
Conserving Water with Artificial Grass
The Southern Nevada Water Authority played a huge role as new rulings to conserve water are driving large properties to replace natural grass with artificial grass. The Bellagio was drawn to SYNLawn due to its lush, natural look and feel. Designers wanted to compliment the landmark building with a more aesthetic turf option.
Since Nevada is under a declared water shortage, water conservation is required for residential and commercial properties. Seasonal watering restrictions and laws have made maintaining natural grass challenging. Nevada is notorious for its desert climate. Las Vegas has long been a tourist destination in the state, so commercial buildings are challenged to create an appealing outdoor space without natural grass. The Bellagio Casino and Resort is a top destination in the city. In order to follow the water conservation guidelines, owners turned to premium synthetic grass for its multiple outdoor spaces. This installation means that the Bellagio will now be ahead of watering restrictions and reduce irrigation costs.
