Landscape designers, builders, volunteers and sponsors come together to create the spectacular garden 'Timeless, what's old is new again...' at Canada Blooms 2013. Watch the creation of this award winning garden from plans to completion.
Earthscape Dinosaur Preserve by Earthscape Ontario - "Our motivation for creating the dinosaur preserve design was to create a space that would be both a sensory playground and a multi-generational amenity space. In order to capture the imagination of Canada Blooms patrons we chose as our theme the most unique and monstrously wild creatures to have walked the face of the earth: dinosaurs. Each corner of the garden is designed to increase the viewer’s anticipation and curiosity."
Wild Atlantic Way by Landscapes by Lucin, Sean Anderson and Tourism Ireland - "Our garden will showcase the world’s longest defined coastal route at a length of 2,400 km, starting from Donegal to West Cork. Our team travelled to Ireland in January to gain inspiration from this awesome landscape, incorporating exciting elements into our garden."
Wild About Stone by Near North Landscaping - "The name of our feature garden is “Wild about Stone.” We will be using as much natural stone as we can in this outdoor living design. We want the visitors to our feature garden to feel they are entering the outdoor living space of an estate home which was built on an old farm property, having the amenities of an urban outdoor kitchen and the feel of the country, a taste of the wild."
World Crops Project by Paul Zammit of the Torontno Botanical Garden, Peter Mitchell and Damian Adjodha - "Farmers from across Ontario’s Greenbelt are already successfully growing world crops and creating new markets close to home. Join the movement! Pick up your free Okra seed pack and get started this summer."
Imagine...Rewilding! by Parklane - "Our garden shows two distinct spaces. In one space we dominate nature. In the other we see ourselves as part of nature. Compare the straight lines and order of the controlled garden with the open space of the wild, where colour is natural, space is organic, water runs freely and we feel connected."
