Chilliwack, BC

Corten & Concrete

Though the home's main living area is on the second floor, the landscape comes up to the meet the upper patio with layers of plantings to create an immersive feel and give garden views from the house. 

The plant palette is restrained for a calming effect while the plants selected are "workhorse" plants that look good over many seasons. 

The soft textured plantings have a softening effect against the hard lines of concrete and corten steel.
