The project involved fencing and landscaping for a newly built property. Paving was required to provide a driveway and an enclosed inner courtyard garden for privacy and shelter. Western Red Cedar was used to construct a close-boarded fence surrounding the courtyard area with a together with a covered entry and rustic gate. Using materials similar to the dwelling, the architectural style of the property was extended echoed in the garden structures, creating a unified space.

The garden is characterized by the bare rocky outcrops typically found in Salt Spring Gardens. The rocks determined the line of the fencing as the pictures show. The enclosed area is nicely sheltered and has the benefit of full sun. It is possible to grow a wide range of plants where there is sufficient depth of soil. Low walls edging the pathways and patio spaces were built to create back-filled raised beds for plants. Climbing plants should do well here.
