Kitchener-Conestogo Rotary Dream Home before landscaping begins.

The Kitchener-Conestogo Rotary Club Dream Home is an annual fund raiser for the local community. In 2009, the Waterloo Chapter of Landscape Ontario donated all the landscaping. Don was the designer and project manager for this landscape – a process that involved the coordination of twenty contractors, suppliers, maintenance firms and the home builder.

This landscape incorporates several ‘water friendly’ features including:

  • Bioswale in the south-west corner (Photo #7)
  • Permeable Pavers used for the patio (Photo #6) and driveway (Photo #9)
  • Rain Water Harvesting Unit in the north-west corner

In addition, the plants were chosen for their hardiness and drought tolerance and the planting areas were heavily mulched to reduce watering needs and ongoing maintenance.
