The elegance of the face chiseled flagstone combined with a high-end precast paver makes for a beautiful, spacious and welcoming entrance.
The key to modernize an entrance to current standards is to open the space by widening the landings and stairs. The house had a set of stairs along the front wall, by creating multiple tiered stairs with beautiful stone work, it allowed us to balance the ratio of stairs to planting.
The landscape, to complement the skillfully built hardscape, is an other key element for a successful entrance. Carefully chosen, the plants should draw attention to the highlight of the design. In this example: the stairs. Size, texture, colours, shape or type of plantings should always be tailored to the site requirements and respect the house style.
New projects coming next spring, stay tuned!

Ideal playground for some lucky kids in Waterdown. This project features a custom hill slide reusing one existing structure to minimize the environmental impact of the project, new path to facilitate circulation through outdoor spaces, repurposed lion’s head to create entrance for tunnel, several stepping logs and a climbing log to entertain the very active kids of that daycare.
Creating a natural playground requires a good understanding of children behaviours and needs towards playing. To create the optimal place for kids to bond and playfully learn, a playground needs to allow for freedom, physical activity, educational opportunities and social bonding.
We were thrilled to help this daycare get a safe, creative and environmentally friendly natural playground.
