Client requested a ‘lawnless’ modern design. Timber decks blend with river rock pathways. Perennial flower beds add continuous color and texture beginning in spring with daffodils through to late summer coneflowers.
A lovely rural property set by a small lake offered instant setting for this design. The client, a self-professed ‘foodie’ wanted a large fruit and vegetable garden to grow fresh ingredients. Raised beds were designed to house the many varieties of lettuce, tomatoes and herbs to be planted. A large pergola was designed to support imported grape vines. A small apple orchard embraces the enclosed garden . To see more of this space and how it has grown go to justcrumbs.ca and follow Chef Suzie
An overgrown front garden needed a balanced design and a fresh new planting plan. The client is an avid gardener who wanted to see two seasons of planting. Tulips and daffodils start the seasonal display while speciality summer bulbs and annuals give an exciting display well into September. Boxwood and holly give structure and balance year round.
This property needed a fresh start after having been rented for a number of years. The client wanted a pond to feature in the garden and a shrub and flower border to support it. Successional blooming was an important consideration. A large entertaining patio was designed close to the house and a quieter more private area for reading and enjoying the garden to the east of the pond.
