Victoria Alpine society

I recently stumbled upon a garden project of the Victoria Alpine Society. I had no idea they maintained this gem, and look forward to visiting others. They are looking for volunteers for their Hospital rock project. Here is a link to their site. , and another for the garden at Beaconhill park.

Victoria homeshow

The Victoria Home show booth, this past weekend

This bridge was stunning, pictures don't do it justice

The Mexican river rock created a quandary, everyone needed to ask if it was real. It is a beautiful pink striped marble, river tumbled smooth.

The Hellebore " Ivory Prince", matched it's color exactly.

The amazing Gardenscapes crew put all this together in a mere two days!

An artsy shot through the front gate's window. Gardenscapes had the gate, and fence custom built in cedar timber, with copper inserts, and iron accents. They like the bridge are one of a kind items created by the design team.

Kiosks with examples of our work.

The zen area, with Basalt column's from Squamish, Pom Pom Boulevard cypress from John's nursery, and pots, and granite sculpture from Urban Oasis, my garden centre.
