ARIA Resort and Casino | Las Vegas, NV
ARIA, the flagship luxury resort and casino of MGM’s multi-billion dollar City Center on the Las Vegas Strip has earned praise for its ever-changing seasonal displays nestled within its three-story spacious lobby. As part of a freestanding “Fantasy Garden” exhibit, Plantworks manufactured an 18 foot tall Boxwood Topiary Tree that served as the focal point of the display.
Mounted on a fully fabricated tree trunk featuring a steel inner-core, rests a 9 foot high x 15 foot diameter boxwood canopy. The boxwood canopy starts 9 feet above the ground (“Clear Trunk Height”) allowing for ground plantings and additional display elements. The commercial-grade, Inherently Fire Retardant (IFR) artificial Boxwood foliage is secured to hundreds of individual, custom fabricated, steel frame panels. Plantworks created the lush exterior of the canopy in separate, detachable, units so that they can be easily be stored and reassembled. When combined, the four sections of the canopy create one of the largest topiaries ever constructed in Las Vegas.
