A Peek Inside Rosedale Gardens

June 4th, 2013

I had the opportunity to attend a Toronto Botanical Garden tour in the Rosedale neighborhood. What an opportunity it was to see some mature and well established gardens and to see some newer and updated gardens in the area as well.

Also some interesting hardscaping.  As many people ooh’d and aah’d at some of the plants, I couldn’t help notice the steps, garden edging or water features.  There really is a lot that goes into creating a great landscape and as much as I love the plants, you can’t forget about some of the hardscaping details.

In addition to being an attractive feature, this wall also allowed better use of their sloped front yard …

I hope you enjoyed the glimpse of Rosedale and can see how hardscaping elements can help take your garden to a new level.
