Landscape Design

Landscaping combines art and science to create a functional and aesthetically pleasing extension of indoor living to the outdoors. Landscape design mixes human technology (houses and buildings) into the natural surroundings. The Landscaping Horticulturalists at Oceanview Home and Garden have an extensive working knowledge of artistic elements (colour, line, form, texture, and scale) and design principles (unity, balance, transition, focalization, proportion, rhythm, repetition, and simplicity).

Oceanview Home and Garden is nationally and provincially recognized for our award winning design. Our unique approach incorporates the basic steps of plot planning, on-site analysis, needs assessments, and plant selection/placement with inspiring artistic vision.

My husband and I went into Oceanview yesterday for the first time. Had no idea how large the centre is. Also had no idea that it carries pretty well every garden/patio/deck need known to us.

There is a tremendous selection of everything from wall art, to water fountains, planters and plants to name a few. Take a snack - so much to see!
