However, to be truly exceptional, water feature lighting design must take into account everything from aesthetic considerations to chemistry, and natural physics to cutting-edge technology.

MGM Grand Pools
This expansive property includes nine different pools spanning several acres, as well as a Lazy River ride running adjacent to the Convention Center. At the time it was built, it was the only casino pool property kept open and accessible after dark. Accordingly, RDLD created luxurious lighting befitting a showpiece property, but also with a sharp eye toward safety and a sense of security for resort guests.

As a result, their trees not only are illuminated, but become as much a work of art as landscaping for the property.
