Outdoor Living


Outdoor Living in an Oakville Home

This family focused backyard has all the makings of a five star resort. Kids and adults can splash in the pool, practice their putting skills, dine al fresco under the cabana, and take a nap in the private lounger. Like Toronto Landscapes, Oakville homes are more like outdoor living spaces than just backyards.  This property utilizes smart landscaping technology to keep it beautiful and multi season functional.  Designed with a sensitivity to biodiversity using a variety of plants and trees including Native species.  The artistic hardscaping harmonizes naturalized gardens with highly manicured elements like the fun putting green. The homeowners have included seasonal plantings including a showy bulb display in springtime.  The front of the property (images to come) has an extensive and beautiful rain garden that Landcare (being certified to designing for water runoff) installed to prevent the excessive flow of water running through the culverts from flooding their front yard.

The trees planted on this property were quite mature and instantly transformed the yard from construction site to forest. Large armour stone help create a garden that references nature and enhance the birch trees that surround them.  The addition of a hot tub to the property allows for year round use. Swimming on the hot days and soaking as the snow falls in the winter contributes to the resort like feel.
