Few cities are as beautiful as Toronto, Canada, so those living downtown will want their own roof garden to take in these exquisite views of Lake Ontario. Though chilly much of the year, an outdoor fireplace can warm spaces during the transitional season and lure you out to a comfortable patio or terrace. High density homes in this city treasure their smaller backyards where every inch of space provides a new opportunity for design of exquisite landscaping and versatile outdoor rooms.

Along the lakefront on the south edge of Toronto is Etobicoke and its neighbor, Mississagua, where high density living and proximity to downtown have brought a lot of new building, with a strong vein of sleek modern design. Those living there know these are high end homes that truly benefit from equally contemporary landscaping. This is where sustainable materials will come into these outdoor living spaces combined with native plants to result in perfectly "green" projects. Landscape architects here will be well versed in this architectural vernacular for those deeply concerned about the environment.

The Toronto Botanical Gardens is the epicenter of all things green in this city. Visit to discover what's in bloom every month of the season or sign up for classes that help you better understand how landscapes are designed. Visit other local parks to see magnificent shade trees and colorful spring accents that can transform a yard into a beautifully planted space by a designer and contractor who understand the climate, soils and plants that thrive here.

Family life thrives around the edges of Toronto where Scarborough, North York, and Markham extend suburban homes far from the city center. These larger lots are a great place to create your dream outdoor kitchen for those who enjoy haute cuisine, or where the kids can play while adults kick back to relax on the weekend. This is where you'll find blueberry bushes, fruit trees and raspberries in the landscape as well as other perennial food crops increase backyard bounty beyond the summer harvest.
