As Canadians, we don’t take our warm weather for granted. We stake claim to every moment of sunshine. In cherishing the landscapes we have, we strive to extend our outdoor happiness as much as possible, creating a sort of second home, within reach of the fridge. Be inspired by what’s possible and work with what you have.

Garden Up

With limited square footage, think about vertical gardening as another surface up for grabs and sometimes, like on a condo balcony, the only one available. Not only does it free up ground space, it’s portable, removable and acts as a glorious colourful and textural accent. The containers are lined appropriately to hold soil and some are self-watering with their own irrigation systems. Click together deck tiles are easy to install, add much warmth and feel like the space is more custom versus a predictable outdoor carpet. Flowers, plants and herbs are now at arm’s reach.
