Business Management

| April 20, 2010

Christmas Décor by Swingle, a division of Swingle Lawn, Tree & Landscape Care in Denver, has become the official holiday lighting provider for the Denver Botanic Gardens.

Swingle, the largest Christmas Décor franchise in the country, will work with Denver Botanic Gardens to create and install the historic Blossoms of Light at Denver Botanic Gardens and Trail of Lights at Denver Botanic Gardens at Chatfield.

Reflecting the Gardens’ and Swingle’s commitment to conservation and sustainability, Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) will make-up a growing proportion of the lighting displays at both locations.

“Denver Botanic Gardens has had a professional partnership with Swingle Lawn, Tree and Landscape Care for more than 50 years,” said Brian Vogt, CEO at Denver Botanic Gardens. “We are excited to move our relationship in a highly creative direction. The partnership will allow us to continue to create new ideas for Blossoms of Light and Trail of Lights that enhance the visitor experience at this year’s holiday events.”

Swingle will develop new ideas and enhancements to Denver Botanic Gardens’ lighting displays that will provide new reasons for people to visit the both events during the holidays.

Installation will begin in September and will be completed by Thanksgiving. These popular holiday displays will be even more spectacular during the 2010 holiday season.
