SW Calgary - Braeside 001

After an extensive renovation of their Braeside home Anne and Michael connected with us to completely renovate the front and backyard. As creative individuals they had a vision for what their garden spaces could become but they needed some help with design to pull it all together and then our services to construct the final product.

In the front we leveled the grade from the house to the street with a retaining wall constructed of Belvedere blocks and Dimensional steps. Pavers were used for the walks. Extensive plantings with an eye toward four seasons of interest and friendly for wildlife was the goal for the plantings. The renovation of the front yard entirely changed the looks of this home and combined with the landscaping made an amazing transformation and significantly more curb appeal.

In the backyard the focus was on some entertaining areas, tying in access to the studio/garage and incorporating a small vegetable garden. It was important to keep a large flowering crab apple in the backyard as this is home to many types of birds throughout the year and holds a significant spot in the hearts of the homeowner. A fountain, many plantings, and other special touches like bee houses and hummingbird feeders enhance the wildlife that buzzes, flies and crawls through this backyard. The ‘ruins’ inspired wall at the back of garden, constructed from the same Belvedere walling used in the front yard, acts as a focal point and disguises a small parking pad behind.
