Help create a welcoming landscape across the entire community, a habitat where people, plants, birds and butterflies flourish. The purpose of the Guidelines that follow is to encourage thinking beyond property lines.
Larch Sanctuary is an important wildlife corridor, protected by Edmonton’s first Conservation Easement. Mactaggart Sanctuary is another valuable natural area just south of the community. To the west are Rabbit Hill and Magrath Parks. We live in a great location.
For this reason especially, we strongly encourage landscaping with native species, plants that grow in local ecosystems. They are hardier, more drought tolerant and require less water. Refer to downloadable PDFs below for more information. Especially note the restricted species, many of which are poisonous or invasive.

To minimize light pollution and energy consumption, exterior lights shall be subtle. They should be restricted to entrance doors, porches and outdoor patios. Let your neighbours enjoy the stars.
Locate large toys, like trampolines, barbeque shelters and storages sheds so that they do not negatively impact views from nearby homes. Try to integrate them with the topography of your yard. Make them blend in. Choose and construct with materials that match your house.
Exterior clothes lines are permitted in side and rear yards. Again, try to design and locate them to minimize visibility.
