Signature Helps Renovate the Reno Tahoe Open Entry

Signature Landscapes is digging in and donating crews to help this year’s Reno Tahoe Open out at Montrêux look its best for the upcoming event next week.

“This area is going to shine because of Signature’s expertise and we’re so grateful to have their support,” said Michael Tragash, Special Events Manager for the Reno Tahoe Open.

A longtime fan of local PGA tournament, Signature Landscapes is completely refurbishing the grand visitor entry area to offer the 60,000 visitors a beautiful experience immediately upon entering the grounds.

“The sweet spot of any event starts the very first second you walk onto the course,” said Steven Fine, of Signature Landscapes. “So we made it a point to guarantee something colorful and inviting for the RTO guests.”

This project has come down to the wire in terms of timing with the opening. Signature crews plan on wrapping up the landscape renovations by Monday. Just in time for the huge volume of busses arriving hourly with excited Reno Tahoe Open fans.
