THE PERGOLA

Pergolas have stood the test of time. Although their styles, materials, and name may have changed, their purpose has remained the same for over 3000 years. The earliest known surviving garden plan, dating back to about 1400 BC belonged to an Egyptian high court official of Thebes; details a pergola over the entry way into the garden. What inspired the creation of pergolas is debatable, perhaps it was purely for their aesthetic beauty, or maybe motivated by the weather. The truth is that they are able to provide both functions wonderfully, and thus have become a timeless entity. 

THE GAZEBO

A gazebo is a perfect place for an outdoor gathering with friends and family. In a gazebo, you and your loved ones get to enjoy a warm afternoon together while staying out of the sun. I think that a gazebo is an ideal place to sit and sip a glass of lemonade on a hot summer afternoon or read a book on a rainy day. It probably comes as no surprise that gazebos have been around for centuries. These are just some examples of the kinds of gazebos you can build in your garden. Mix and match materials and design principles to get the perfect custom gazebo in your outdoor space.

THE ARBOR

 The earliest gardens were a utilitarian mix of flowering and fruiting trees and shrubs with some herbaceous medicinal plants. Arbors and pergolas were used for vining plants, and Persian gardens often included reflecting pools and water features. Ancient Babylonians were perhaps the first to plant primarily for ornamentation, with courtyard gardens that included trompe l’oeil, topiary, and small reflecting pools. Today the arbor represents a solitary place to escape or a harbinger to welcome you into garden spaces or transitioning designs. 

THE BUNKIE

A bunkie is the ultimate invitation to never leave the garden. With the tiny home movement we see a growing demand for living spaces nestled into the garden. We partnered with the finest builders in Ottawa, My Next Home Reno who help us deliver the finest bunkie and little home construction to compliment your garden.

THE SHED

The idea that a shed is just a shed is absolutely preposterous to me. Sheds are an opportunity to organize and beautify your garden space. A shed doesn’t have to be a cookie cutter structure – it can be custom designed to meet your every need in a diverse and beautiful way. 

THE DECK

As a transition from your home to the garden we often traverse the age old deck.  This is a really important space in the garden. The deck allows us the means to acclimate to outdoor space, a kind of neutral zone that resembles out indoor space but begins to open up into the garden. We spend a lot of time on our deck as we entertain and relax. The deck is also an important vantage point from which we can enjoy the full beauty of our outdoor landscape.

THE BRIDGE

Not every garden will have a bridge. Of course if I had my way I would quickly change this paradigm. The bridge is one of the most romantic additions you can add to a landscape. And if you think you need a water feature to have a bridge, think again! Many bridges are built over dry creek bed river stone designs and serve the same purpose. 

THE GREEN HOUSE

Growing plants in a controlled environment has been around since the Roman times & experimentation of the design didn’t stop until the late 20th century – there is still much debate on which design is perfect. Grow your favorite plants, regardless of the Zone you’re in with a greenhouse that is custom to your gardening needs.
