Blossoms Come Quickly to Back Yard Gardens at The Ridge on Vancouver Island

Spring comes quickly to Vancouver Island, and with it the spectrum of colour that fills gardens and planter boxes. Rhododendrons and Azaleas thrive in the mild West Coast climate and are blooming shortly after the spring daffodils and tulips make their appearance.

While the Island is green year round, spring gardens burst into bloom earlier here than anywhere else in Canada!  With large yards at The Ridge subdivision, gardeners can plant flowers, shrubs and trees to their heart’s content. Design your landscaping to showcase year-round colour, and still make it as low maintenance as you wish.

The Ridge community has 20 new homes under construction in  Phase I and preparing lots for Phase II. With new residents already enjoying their spacious properties, contact us to learn more about building your new custom home at The Ridge.

Modern or Contemporary? Let Homes by Crown Isle Guide You in the Language of Home Design

Homes by Crown IsleWhen you think of building your dream home, you may use design words like Modern or Contemporary to explain your vision to your builder.

But did you know they can mean two very different things? Modern design refers to a period of time - it is a design style that was created in the 1920s-1950s. It doesn’t change, it is a defined style, and will remain such forever.

Contemporary design however is ever-changing. It is of the moment. Today, many elements of modern design are incorporated into contemporary construction, so the meanings can overlap.

Modern really refers to “Mid-Century Modern.” It is recognizable by its clean, unadorned interiors. We often now refer to modern interiors as “retro.”

Contemporary design refers to what is popular or used right now. Contemporary design can be very eclectic, because it is ever-changing and borrows pieces and styles from different eras. For example, furniture and art from the modern era are often used in contemporary design, and traditional mouldings and millwork are also incorporated in many cases.

It important to be able to discuss with your builder and interior designer what style you are after, to create your true dream home.

Many homes by custom home builder Homes by Crown Isle are built in a “West Coast Contemporary” Style, which is the preferred style throughout the master-planned Crown Isle golf community.

As the premier builder in Crown Isle, Homes by Crown Isle will take the time to understand what style of home will suit your lifestyle and has the experience to bring your vision to life.
