Part­ner­ing to create vi­sions of love­li­ness that pairs de­sign ex­cel­lence with qual­ity fin­ishes and ex­quis­ite func­tion, this dy­namic duo is com­mit­ted to sur­round­ing your home with beauty.

“At Vi­sionS­capes, beauty is found in the bal­ance be­tween form and func­tion,” shares Jeff Camp­bell, who for 15 years has pro­vided high-end res­i­den­tial de­sign/builds for out­door liv­ing en­vi­ron­ments. “Our Cal­gary team en­sures that your dream land­scape is both aes­thet­i­cally pleas­ing and struc­turally sound.”

The clients de­sired a cus­tom­ized ap­proach to a Zen gar­den with an Asian-in­spired theme that would re­flect their tastes for a oneof-a-kind sanc­tu­ary in their own back­yard. Uti­liz­ing ex­otic Red Balau Batu from Kayu Canada that cap­tures ex­te­rior home fin­ishes, ad­dress sig­nage, fenc­ing, a day bed and per­gola, the ex­per­tise and crafts­man­ship of Views­capes brought a unique vi­sion to life. With the ad­van­tages of low-main­te­nance, dura­bil­ity, and a premium look and feel, this ex­otic hard­wood was the per­fect choice.

“We cus­tom built the mail­box and ad­dress en­try fea­ture made of pow­der-coated alu­minum and Kayu’s Red Balau Batu with re­cessed LED light­ing. The fence also fea­tures re­cessed light­ing in the caps with alu­minum de­tail strips,” ex­plains Camp­bell. The land­scape con­sists of three dis­tinct liv­ing ar­eas that in­clude the lounge area by the fire­place, the Zen-in­spired day bed, and the per­gola with its out­door kitchen en­vi­ron­ment.

Cus­tom fea­tures in­clude in­te­grated, re­cessed, in­frared heaters at the top of the day bed and cus­tom de­signed lo­tus de­tails on the back screen. Sig­nif­i­cant light­ing through­out ex­te­rior flows fur­ther af­fords func­tional am­bi­ence with ac­cented fea­tures. The stucco-clad fire­place dis­plays a hand-carved stone Bud­dha im­age. “From Bali, it weighs over 2,000 pounds and it was a chal­lenge that pro­vided ex­cel­lent re­sults,” adds Camp­bell.

Ver­sa­tile and suit­able for the Al­berta cli­mate, the hard­ness, in­ter­lock­ing grain, and nat­u­ral oils make Kayu ex­otic woods a proven per­former. “We have been work­ing with Vi­sionS­capes since 2003 in their ex­te­rior fin­ish and land­scap­ing projects,” ad­mits Jim La­belle of Kayu Canada. “All of our trop­i­cal hard­woods make any land­scape de­sign more en­tic­ing and are ideal for cus­tom home projects.”
