Usually travelling along Oak Bay Avenue is picturesque because of pretty old Victorian houses, but in this commercial spot, it’s because of the tiny front garden.
The many different heights & textures gives the impression it’s a larger garden than it really is.
The variety of evergreens & colors keep it interesting all year round.
I’m especially charmed by the low-growing ground covers & stepping-stones used on the narrow boulevard. It’s decorative, yet still gives access for people getting out of parked cars. Such a tiny plot of grass probably wouldn’t stand up as well to the traffic.
