FROM THE FILES OF JW ZUNINO
The construction of the UNLV College of Hotel Administration building is underway and JW Zunino was tasked with providing a state-of-the-art, water efficient landscape and irrigation design, which symbolizes the progress and vision of UNLV development. Undulating concrete seating blocks were implemented to provide students with individual and group seating, while preventing vandalism from skateboard activity. Planting arrangements were very formal and deliberate to guide students and visitors through the outdoor spaces while leading them to the building entries. JW Zunino also had an integral part in providing the golf management program with an outdoor putting green demonstration area for students. This area will provide a forum for instruction and teaching methods. The multitude of uses surrounding the building, and how that relates to the existing campus, is what makes this a unique outdoor experience.
OUT WITH THE OLD,
IN WITH THE NEW
For the majority of us, January is the month of new beginnings, fresh starts, and resolutions. In the spirit of getting ready for the new year, we expunge all of the old from our lives such as clutter, debris, and things we have outgrown or no longer need. Prepping our outdoor space for the upcoming warm weather is just as important. Our yards have plenty of debris at this time of year to get rid of. Here are some tips for getting your yard ready for the new year.
- Clean up fallen leaf debris and clear out weeds
- Prune deciduous trees
- Plant perennials and shade & fruit trees
- Julius Caesar made January 1, the first day of the year in 46 B.C.
