Landscape design is the art of combining nature, culture, and your existing residence into a fluid and functional space. Our landscape designers are here to help you design exactly what you want. We'll get a blue print professionally drawn up for you so that the build out process will be seamless. We can't wait to see what you come up with or what we can collectively create. Whether you need a total renovation of your yard or merely a few additional design touches, we provide everything you need for your ideal yards. By adding new hardscapes, softscapes, flowers, and other landscaping items, you can breathe new life into an old outdated yard quickly.
You probably have a number of great ideas for your landscape design, some that are practical and some that may not be. Taking a good look at your property and walking around, performing an analysis of the site will help you understand what will work and what won't work when it comes to you landscape. Be sure to take a drive or stroll around your neighborhood and have a good look at some of your neighbors landscapes. Make notes on what you like, and what you don't like about other properties. What works nicely, and what does not work so well. Have a look at the lay of the land, how others deal with slopes, drainage etc. What kinds of plants specimens have they used? What different tree varieties? How do the colors change from spring, to summer, to fall? Remember, the Okanagan has its own special climate and is suitable for a number of different varieties of trees and shrubs. Although we are limited in plants compared to other cities like Vancouver, there are still a great number of hardy plants available that flourish in our climate. When considering shrub and tree varieties be sure to plan for the long term growth of each plant. It is very important not to overcrowd your garden and you also don't want to waste money on plants or trees that will eventually have to be removed.
