About Julie Tennock
My ideas come from education, experience and an open mind, thinking out of the box.
An idea can come while sipping that cup of tea in the morning or riding through the forests with my dog.
I get much of my inspiration from nature. I gain ideas from my surroundings, hiking and mountain biking through our lush forests on the West Coast of British Columbia.
I look around and see how things have fallen into place naturally in the most amazing ways.
My education began with art, design and graphics. It didn’t take me long to realize that working in an indoor environment would be a hard road for me to follow.
Horticulture came next, I spent the next few years learning about plants, landscape design, botany , plant disease and sustainable practices. I combined my love of the outdoors with my design and art skills and started Wildside Landscape Design Ltd. It stuck , and I have now been thriving for over 17 years .
Trying to imitate nature is what I love most, using rock, native plant material and natural elements in my designs.
My desire to add new plant life to our surroundings and watch them grow and prosper is my motivation. I find it very satisfying to take a once barren lot and transform it into something beautiful that can thrive and invigorate our environment.
We try to educate throughout the process, teaching safe environmental practices and using natural products.
We meet the goals of our clients and try to exceed their expectations, creating a landscape that the client loves and is willing to take care of.
If this has been accomplished , we have done our job.
