In the heart of the Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort at Gainey Ranch, a magnificent 4-star hotel, you’ll find the fountain courtyard, filled with majestic palms, fountains, and streams as it leads you from the lobby to the main pool area. About two years ago the hotel horticultural staff added Urban Collection containers and CWM Modular container irrigation for additional color along the paths. More images after the break.
The containers contain both annuals and perennials, and are completely maintained by hotel staff using the CWM irrigation system. The crisp lines complement the modern linearity of the space, and the custom color was matched specifically to the existing furnishings.
They also used our Urban Ash/Trash container in the area as a complement to the containers.
If you want to find a harsh climate for FRP products like this, just go to Arizona. According to our customers there, most typical fiberglass pots won’t last a season in the heat and UV exposure. These images were taken approx. 18 months after installation, and we were pleased to see that the containers were holding up to the very public conditions at the hotel.
