West Coast Gardens

One of the most beautiful places on the planet is the West Coast of Canada.  Living in a temperate rain forest can be challenging if you do not like rain.  But if you are a gardener you welcome the rainy seasons and so do your gardens.  Creating gardens with native plant species correlates to healthy plants and new ecosystems, not to mention beautiful outdoor spaces to enjoy all year long.  Native plants have evolved to thrive in this climate, regardless of the season.  Keep your garden design low maintenance by incorporating native species and mulch your gardens to protect and feed their roots through all seasons.

Once your garden design is complete…sit back and enjoy for years to come.  The only left to do is divide your grasses and other perennials every 2 to 3 years.  You can pot the new plants and give away as gifts or start a new garden area to enjoy!
