This beautiful property sits on the edge of the Edmonton river valley. The yard's design blends the natural elements of its surroundings into the function and structure of the house and yard making it feel as though the house was built into the valley rather than next to it.
The contemporary design of the house is extended throughout the yard. Clean lines and unique spaces and elements make each part of the property interesting in its own way.
The elevated garden makes gardening easier while adding style and structure to the yard. 18" walls provide ample seating space for entertaining guests or just sitting quietly by one's self among the plant life.
Like most things in life, it is the little things that matter. Whether it is the smallest of perennials or the way the water falls over the rocks in a creek bed, small details make big impressions.
Even nature is selective in what grows where. Placement and selection of plants will effect the beauty and value the property gives back to its owner.
Adding contours and elevation changes to a yard will make it more interesting, natural and attractive.
Consistency in the design brings the structure and the landscape together giving a more expansive feel to the house and its surroundings.
