There are a lot of “builder basic” landscapes in Vancouver, and landscaping is often one item that gets pushed further down the priority list, or even forgotten about entirely when building a new home.

Luckily, with our help, your new dream home can look like it from the outside, too.

Sunbathing on the patio

Here’s an awesome example of how a landscaper can take a fine yard and turn it into something incredible. The first image here is the yard we started with.

As you can see, the redesign of this backyard not only made it a more practical space to entertain and relax in, but the clean lines of the patio make the area feel easily twice as large.

We were able to help the homeowner keep their personal style in the look of the space, and now this backyard can be shared even better with friends and family.

If you want to get a lot more out of your yard, or are just sick of that cookie cutter builder basic landscaping, give us a call and we can give you something you’ll love.

Beautiful crocosmia for color

Tired of your yard looking drab in the heat of summer? Wishing your garden had more than browns and (hopefully) a few different green tones when the rains finally clear up and we can finally enjoy the sunshine?

Well, look no further than our good friend Crocosmia!

This colorful family of plants brings a wide variety of summer blooming, warm toned flowers with nice sharp lines. They’re pretty easygoing and can be utilized in a number of great spots in a planter bed or garden, whether they’re the star of the show or part of a supporting cast.

Once they are established, they are fairly drought resistant, and they even attract butterflies and hummingbirds, which is why you’ve probably seen multiple varieties of them all over town. 

If you’ve been convinced to try out the versatile and diverse family of beautiful flowers, give us a call and we can provide some locally sourced crocosmia to brighten up your summer!

Thatch is a layer of roots that accumulates where grass grows faster than it can decompose. It forms on the surface of the soil and can constrict and suffocate your grass under a buildup of decomposing organisms.

Thatch reduces the oxygen levels in your soil and slows down the work of the organisms that would usually break it down, so it forms a thick mat.
