Making Outdoor Spaces Matter


Sustainable Landscaping

Sustainable Land Care Solutions

With the effects of our shifting climate patterns, the scope of conventional landscape maintenance must evolve and expand to meet demands for sustainability and environmental stewardship.

SOLscapes Landscape Design INC. has been a leader in redefining responsible land care practices since 2016.

In an effort to proactively address seasonal damage to soil structure and plants due to an increased frequency of severe weather events (drought, heat waves, flooding, snow/ice storms) we exercise best practices to minimize our environmental impact while continuing to provide superior service that meets the highest expectations

What is Edible Landscaping?


Edible landscapes (or foodscapes) are gardens that have been designed to integrate food plants in a practical way within an ornamental setting. This type of landscape provides an aesthetically pleasing garden that simultaneously produces fresh local fruits and vegetables for its owner.

  • It's easy

    With our support, growing your own food has never been so simple. Throughout all of our projects, our priority is to create functional low maintenance gardens that cater to your needs. Save your energy, let us do the growing for you!

  • High Density Nutrition

    Harvesting local, fully ripened, chemical-free produce provides higher density vitamins and micronutrients than supermarket fruits and veggies. 
There is a higher probability that you and your family will value the freshness of food grown on your doorstep, encouraging daily consumption. You are empowered to be a part of the growing process from seed to harvest.

  • Save Money

    We can grow an unbelievable amount of food in a small space. We are equipped with the knowledge to grow or coach you through nurturing an abundant food source that maximizes your available space while minimizing food waste.

  • Save Energy

    Picking up fresh produce for dinner after a long day is much easier when all you have to do is harvest what you need from your garden. Growing your own foodscape will minimize your carbon footprint by reducing shipping and overall energy output that is produced in conventional large-scale agriculture (mechanized plowing, planting, harvesting and storing).

  • Save Water

    Most home gardens require a fraction of the water that would be necessary to produce the same crop using large-scale agricultural production. Installation of a drip irrigation system is one of several strategies SOLscapes uses to minimize water waste.

  • Flavourful Opportunities

    Explore growing new varieties of fruits and veggies suited for this climate. We grow for taste.

  • Multi Functional

    A mix of beauty and utility. Gardening is a valuable source of stress relief and contributes to creating a functional ecosystem above and below ground.

As someone who has grown up in Squamish it has been a great opportunity to see a small town blossom into a diverse community orientated city.

The following include some of my favorite horticultural experiences leading up to creating SOLscapes. In the past, I held the position of lead hand gardener at Grouse Mountain Resorts, attended Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Horticultural Technician Program, worked for Vancouver based organic landscaping company “My Living Canvas” as well as Garibaldi Nursery, volunteered/worked for “Good Time Farming” (organic farmers in Squamish), attended a Permaculture Design course, and helped out with Squamish Farmers Market’s “What’s In” booth. My passion is growing food… and showing everyone that you can have a beautifully ornamental landscape that is edible! My spare time is spent playing in the woods, on the water, and in a variety of gardens. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have ended up working in the field I am most passionate about with one of the most amazingly knowledgeable, inspiring and kind people I have ever met; my SOLsister Stephanie Vigneux!

Steph

With a degree and background founded in collaborative initiatives for alternative education, resource management and conservation, I migrated to the West coast with the intention of exploring and learning about its abundant beauty. My fascination with herbal medicine expanded and lead me to pursue a certificate in Holistic Nutrition and an ongoing study of Permaculture Design; responding to a growing need for food as medicine and community resilience. I can’t wait to share this with you in your new SOLscaped garden space!

What a treat that all of these dreams have collectively come true through developing SOLscapes! You can otherwise find me feeding my sense of wonder through organic gardening, foraging for wild edibles, medicine making, climbing rocks, paddling, scaling mountains, homesteading and playing in the dirt.

Elizabeth Laing

In my opinion, there is nothing better than that first strawberry, pea, carrot and tomato out of your own garden, so I am thrilled to work with the SOLsisters to spread the garden love. My education and training in agriculture, horticulture and design occurred through a multitude of experiences including working on organic farms and in garden maintenance on and off for the last 20 years, going to school for Ecological Restoration and Landscape Architecture, teaching Horticulture at the College of New Caledonia, and working as Horticultural Designer for Paul Sangha Landscape Architecture in Vancouver. I also completed a Permaculture Design Certificate with Whole Systems Design Centre in the incredibly beautiful Mad River Valley in Vermont. When I’m not in the garden, you can find me exploring the extraordinary wilderness of the Sea to Sky with my lovely toddler.

As someone who grew up in Squamish, being a part of this small town blossoming into a diverse community-orientated city, has and continues to be an amazing experience and honour. 

The following horticultural experiences eventually led me to embark on the entrepreneurial journey and start SOLscapes 7 years ago. In the past, I held the position of lead hand gardener at Grouse Mountain Resorts , attended Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Horticultural Technician Program, worked for Vancouver-based organic landscaping company “My Living Canvas” as well as Garibaldi Nursery, volunteered/worked for “Good Time Farming” (organic farmers in Squamish), attended a Permaculture Design course, and experimented in my own growing spaces. 

Over the last 7 years I have had the amazing opportunity to work closely with a variety of community members including non-profits, school groups, homeowners, strata councils, developers, and last but definitely not least, our inspirational SOLscapes crew! I consider myself incredibly lucky to have ended up working in the field I am most passionate about with my SOLsister Stephanie Vigneux

Steph


Growing up in small-town Quebec with a family-owned business has certainly defined my dedication to supporting and sourcing locally. In my opinion, this is the foundation for community resilience and longevity. Since 2016, myself and my incredibly talented co-creator Jordie Bulpit have developed a service that truly demonstrates this value-added approach to business. 

With a degree and background founded in collaborative initiatives for alternative education, resource management and conservation, I migrated to the West Coast with the intention of exploring and learning about its abundant beauty. My fascination with regenerative farming and herbal medicine expanded and led me to pursue a certificate in Holistic Nutrition and an ongoing study of Permaculture Design. Since then, my journey and education in Horticulture has prompted an evolving commitment to challenging the scope of conventional land-care practices. SOLscapes is a product of a need for change. The way that you interact with your space matters, and I am so thrilled that our incredibly dedicated team is here to help!   

You can otherwise find me feeding my sense of wonder through organic gardening, foraging for wild edibles, climbing rocks, paddling, scaling mountains, homesteading and playing in the dirt.


What People Say About Us


"Jordi and Steph are simply awesome to work with - their desire to "get it right" was clearly evident throughout the process of landscaping my very large driveway. They transformed the space into not only something beautiful but a welcoming, calm, zen-like entrance to my home. My neighbours love it as much as I do. The plantings were selected to require minimal upkeep and to provide points of interest through all seasons. They, and the Solscapes' team are a hard-working bunch of people with great attitude and spirit. Highly recommend"
Trish Paterson
"Solscapes did great job with the maintenance contract for our strata complex this past season. They are current on best horticultural practises and work in a manner sensitive to the environment. They are forward thinking on their weekly maintenance approach and modify their scheduled operations as required (bi-weekly). They are a friendly and efficient team to work with. Thanks so much!!!"
Christy Voelker
"We love our new garden and working with SOLscapes. They have a great balance of listening to our input and providing suggestions to make the garden better. Installing the garden was done professionally and quickly. We are planning to do more work with them - and that is another positive: they pay attention to budgets. I've worked with other gardening companies and I found SOLscapes to be friendlier and more cost effective while providing an excellent result."
