SE Calgary - Auburn Bay 002

This garden in the south-east Calgary community of Auburn Bay is a good example of a smaller property with a low maintenance approach. Some patio space and a fire-pit were desired as well as privacy from the neighboring properties. The slope also needed to be dealt with without a lot of retaining walls or expense.

The retaining we developed in this garden is made from Belvedere blocks and is used to both retain the fire-pit area level but also to enclose it a little for a more cozy feeling. The remaining slope in the back is planted with hardy plant material and mulched with landscape fabric and washed rock. This holds in moisture and suppresses weeds thus reducing maintenance. As there is no lawn the homeowners can be away for several weeks and things take care of themselves.
