Davey’s grounds maintenance crew is on-site weekly at the Hard Rock Casino, ensuring the frequently populated green space maintains its curb appeal.
Located in the heart of Cincinnati, the Hard Rock Casino is not only a place where visitors can try their luck, it’s also a location for live entertainment and outdoor activities for the public. With 22 acres of green space outside of its doors, the Hard Rock Casino brings a park-like atmosphere to the bustling downtown area.
Davey’s partnership with the Hard Rock began in 2019 after the Hard Rock acquired the former Jack Casino. In June 2020, after a brief period of being closed because of COVID-19, Davey helped the Hard Rock maintain their large green spaces before their grand opening to the public in September 2021.
Davey remains on-site at the Hard Rock, with crews mowing weekly and performing other work such as mulching, lawn fertilization, and maintaining plant beds, including three flower changeouts throughout the year. Crews perform pruning and irrigation services during the growing season and snow removal services in the winter months.
“We continue daily to try to improve because there’s a lot of future growth going on here, and we want to keep our relationship open, honest, and growing,” Jack Reynolds, Account Manager for Davey, says.
Safety is the biggest priority for Davey’s crews, especially since they often interact with the public in such a large and open green space. By avoiding heavily populated areas while performing maintenance tasks and being mindful of crowds on the green space, crews are able to continually maintain the space without disrupting the public’s enjoyment of it.
Davey’s partnership with the Hard Rock will continue to grow. The Hard Rock has plans to bump up sustainability initiatives on-site, which they can accomplish through the help of Davey.
“We love what Davey does, we love what Davey’s about, we love the communication [they have with us], we love the service we get with one phone call,” Shawn Hollander, Facility Manager at the Hard Rock, says. “Davey is going to be our partner for a long time.
