Herbert - Before

Site

New Home placed on a flat acre located in Langley, BC

Intention

Design a 'West Coast' themed landscape to compliment this West Coast style home with a pool, poolscape and minimal amount of lawn to be mowed

Solution

Designed in 2013. A meandering driveway leading to a round-about Auto Court at the front door with an off-shoot drive to lead to the backyard shop. A large fountain is designed into the center of the round-about to serve as the FocalPoint as guests enter the property also as the homeowner looks out their home windows, front door and exit the property. Large meandering plant beds and lawn areas were designed to minimize lawn mowing maintenance as the operator would not have to get off their riding lawn mower and weedwack any edges. The pool and hot tub are designed in directly outside the rear of the home. The poolscape surrounds the outside of the pool to provide privacy from the business use of the rear shop. The pool enclosure fencing surrounds the entire property. Cedars are planted down each side of the property for optimal privacy from neighbours. The rear of the property remains lawn as it is the location of the septic system. The following plants were used:
