We are proud to be a part of something bigger. From wetland restoration, forest road decommissioning, living roofs and highway greening, to custom growing for Canada’s coldest regions, we’ve been involved in countless great projects that have made the world a little greener. Check out some of the great projects we’ve worked on.

  • Blakeburn Lagoons Park, Port Coquitlam BC

    When Blakeburn Lagoons Park opens in spring 2018, it will be a peaceful oasis where people can go to commune with nature and experience a functioning wildlife habitat (City of Port Coquitlam). More than 100,000 native plants, varying from perennial flowers and wetland plants to shrubs and trees, were grown and supplied by NATS Nursery for this habitat restoration! The 11-hectare (27-acre) park in northeast Port Coquitlam was formerly the site of two waste settling ponds, and was redeveloped in 2017 and early 2018 (City of Port Coquitlam). The Park now features: 1.6 kilometres of looped walking trails A reflective space designated as a place to reflect, heal and honour, with seating, plantings and views of the lagoons, Seating, educational signage and a picnic area Viewing platforms at key vantage points Varied ecological habitat zones (e.g. woodland, grassland, wetland, aquatic) providing diverse wildlife habitat More than 100,000 indigenous shrubs and groundcover plants, more than 1,300 indigenous trees and two acres of native grasses Four wildlife-only habitat islands, and Vegetative buffers and fencing to protect environmentally sensitive areas from public access. The park was also designed to help manage stormwater runoff in the surrounding neighbourhood (City of Port Coquitlam). NATS Nursery was proud to be the native plant supplier for this project, delivering high quality plants, on time and on budget!...
