Project Components: Plants

"Carefully considered choices and creative design of each element will ensure the outcome will be your perfect outdoor sanctuary."


Inner city space constraints can make people want the feeling of more yard than they have. Sprawling acreages sometimes feel too big. In both cases, plants are used to shape space by adding vertical elements, improving the view or framing yards within yards.

Many factors must be taken into consideration when we design a planting plan for a Calgary landscaping project. These include hardiness, exposure to light and wind, eventual size and shape, winter interest, screening capability, colour and blooming sequence.

Plants don't always thrive in chinook country. The botany of the area is another aspect of the art of landscaping in Calgary. Here at Aura Landscapers, we've been learning our craft for more than 35 years.
