Pond & Rain-Garden For a Very Wet Toronto Property

Tired of their backyard being frequently flooded and wanting to provide a wildlife haven in the city, these homeowners were looking for a solution that would be environmentally friendly and practical. As well as a stunning wildlife pond (with waterfall!), we designed and built an overflow rain-garden which spans the length of the backyard, and doubles as a beautiful, native woodland garden.

Swale & Rain-Garden for Downspout Run-Off in Milton

These homeowners needed to deal with the rainwater coming from their downspout, and wanted the solution to be beautiful, low-maintenance and environmentally friendly. As well as biodiversity enhancing gardens, we built a river-rock swale to channel the water towards the new rain-garden, where water will infiltrate with the help of shredded hardwood-mulch and fen plants.
