Elegant Mountain Living Extravaganza
Nestled at the top of the British Properties in beautiful West Vancouver, this luxury modern mountain living offers 270 degrees of breath taking, spectacular panoramic views of Vancouver, Stanley Park, UBC and the Pacific Ocean.
Award winning builder, Eurohouse Construction Inc, designed and built this lavish, luxurious, modern, state of the art home and invited The Garden Guru to create the gardens. The design intent was to create a direct reflection of the home, creative and advanced, with a wow factor.
The terraced garden spaces were challenging and were created from scratch by building levels. Each space was intricate wire work filled with soil and framed with coconut mesh to maximize the planting space in an organic manner.
When planting the mountain top garden, zone and plant selection is very important. The change in season is drastic and not all plants can handle this climate.
The house entrance and pool gardens are made to look perfect 365 days of the year with attention to details for every season. With the bold colours and interesting textures, the client can find the perfect outdoor living space to relax, entertain, dine and enjoy quality time with friends and family. Elegant classic and impressive entrance and rooftop gardens were crafted in deep reds pallets, light dusty blues, touches of pinks and orange to compliment the granite driveway and house exterior. A special grand trellised ‘Bloodgood’ Maple is the wow factor at the main door. A magical path made for a relaxing stroll was crafted with bulky extra large basalt pavers, mixed river rock and blurred by spilling lush evergreens, colourful perennials and soft ground covers were all planted and spaced carefully in order to set the tone and rhythm to allow the client to slow down and enjoy nature’s harmony.
The south west facing pool and patios were luxuriously made with sleek clean lines which define the infinity pool and hot tub, full kitchen, fire pit framed with concrete planting spaces and cedar trellised sitting benches.
Vibrant colour and exotic plants complete this showstopper poolside garden design using Palm Trees, variegated Yucca and ‘Sombrero Echinacea’ for a gateway vacation feel that sets the tone for perfect quality time on bright sunny days or crisp winter nights with the sparkling Vancouver city lights.
