Garden Designer’s Vancouver Roof-garden

When it came time to design her 240-square-foot roof deck overlooking Vancouver’s skyline, garden designer Glenna Partridge decided to go bold. “I could have chosen a more subdued color palette to blend with the blue and gray cityscape, but instead I chose to contrast and almost compete with the city view,” she says.

Full sun, strong winds and no irrigation meant that Partridge had to get clever with her planting design. Because there was no way to water the plants besides lugging a watering can up to the roof, she chose sturdy sun-loving and drought-tolerant plants.
