Grow Green is a guide to creating and maintaining sustainable gardens and lawns using non-invasive, readily available plants in Metro Vancouver. The website provides a searchable database of plants that thrive in our local climate, without needing lots of water or chemicals. For people with lots of yard space or only a few containers, Grow Greens is all about selecting the right plant for the right place.
Working in collaboration with Metro Vancouver and UBC Botanical Garden, LEES+Associates created Photoshop renderings to help everyone from novice gardeners to landscape industry professionals visualize the potential of their outdoor space. Students from the Horticulture Training Program at the UBC Botanical Garden are now turning the five most downloaded planting schemes into reality. Below is the future site of the Grow Green demonstration gardens.
The top five most downloaded planting schemes:
