Full Yard with Rock Work – University Area (Calgary, AB)

The Challenge

For this new home in an established area, the homeowners wanted a natural front yard with no lawn and a mix of mostly native evergreen and deciduous shrubs and groundcover flowers that will bloom throughout the growing season. Dogwood, birches, evergreens and grasses bring colour in winter too.

The Solution

On both sides of the yard, we built rock river swales with flagstone waterfalls to take water from the roof and distribute it throughout the yard. Rustic logs act as edging against the neighbour’s lawn.

I look forward to driving into my own driveway now – my yard has curb appeal and harmony. Laureen nailed the concept I was looking for and we had a fun, creative process working it out together. I found Laureen to be extremely knowledgeable and time and money conscious with the landscaping design work. That was followed up by a hand’s on personal involvement with Tender Loving Care overseeing all details of the installation
