Much of what we think of as traditional farmland in Manitoba was originally wetland. When designing new communities, we’re actually reclaiming and restoring them.
Working extensively with Native Plant Solutions, a branch of Ducks Unlimited, and partnering with organizations like the Nature Conservancy of Canada, we’ve become specialists in naturalizing wetlands and incorporating native grasses and plants into our communities. These signature features are also designed to clean waterways by collecting run-off and filtering it with native grasses and shoreline plants. In this way, impurities are captured before they reach the city’s drainage systems, better protecting our rivers and streams.
