Before & After: Nicomen Island Farm

Nicomen Island Farm

This newly built home on a farm setting is nestled in the Lower Mainland of BC on a Nicomen Island Dairy Farm.  Our client loved the look of a ‘English cottage garden’ but didn’t want the mess and work that came with maintaining all the perennials.

We designed a concept layout that included split-rail fencing, rock boulder walls, wood arbours around the hot tub, a water feature and proper placement for their trampoline and clothes line dryer without it becoming an eye sore in the garden.

The planting plan was designed to have an emphasis on flowering shrubs and evergreens that required very little maintenance but still created a show of colour throughout the seasons.  Plantings such as contorted witch hazel, hibiscus, heavenly bamboos and a flowering honeysuckle over the arbour were incorporated into the hot tub area for fall and winter interest – when the hot tub is used the most.

Unfortunately we didn’t have control over the selection of plant material brought on site nor the placement of certain landscape features but the bones are in place and a beautiful garden it is! Completing and blending into the existing topography perfectly.
