At Rock Soil & Seed we are constantly updating our portfolio with new photographs as our garden's mature over the seasons. Please check back again to see the changes. 

Freeman Residence

A low maintenance evergreen front and back yard garden that allowed spaces for privacy, entertaining, children's play and a food growing. Design elements include a sun trellis on the south facing deck that doubles as a grape vine support and bird and butterfly oasis, a multi-story design mimicking natural forest function, walkway made from reused urbanite, and a children’s tree fort made from reused cedar fencing.


NATIVE FOREST SUCCESSION PLAN 2017-2018. In 2017 I was asked to design the landscape of the newly build fire hall incorporating use of local native species to connect to surrounding mature forest ecosystem. (Project in Installation Phase)


Vincent Residence

This Douglas Park garden design incorporates natives and winter interest evergreen shrubs to give it an overall great look all year round. The diversity in the species connect together to attract and support pollinators and soil health.

Larson-Skladan Residence

West coast wild edible garden meets entertaining oasis. Warm cedar additions compliment a modern framework of pathways that provide intimate relaxing getaways and connect for larger gatherings. Birds and butterflies sing and gather food. Mixed texture and colour provides private spaces and adds year round interest. The red wood cedar sunken deck meets the durable stone walkway and together unit to make one larger space for bigger gatherings, but separately function to make smaller spaces more intimate.


Murphy Residence

As the city moves towards a higher density, front yards are now shifting into potential entertaining spaces to accommodate the increased in-home suites. This native species design, uses permaculture principles by using fruit shrubs as privacy hedges on patio, planted ground cover as a way to cover soil and keep it more nutrient dense and biologically active which benefits the health of the garden.


PERMACULTURE RE-DESIGN 2017: Designed to engage the children in the principals of forest succession. It is a an area where the kids can run and explore through pathways that lead from ground cover into herbaceous perennial beds into thickets filled with berries and roses, into canopy of understory fruit and native trees and ending in the Native Mature forest.
