  • Projects We Are Proud Of

    Greening the earth one project at a time.


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.

  • Olympic Village LiveRoof®

    NATS Nursery produced a 10,722 square foot LiveRoof for the Olympic Village at False Creek. We used the LiveRoof Standard System with a 4.25” soil depth planted with a mix of sedums, bulbs and grasses.                

  • Vancouver Convention Centre Green Roof

    NATS Nursery supplied 350,000 native plants to create a self-sustaining ecosystem reflective of a coastal British Columbian grassland meadow on the rooftop of the Vancouver Convention Centre. The design incorporated 25 species of Pacific Northwest native plants best suited to roof top survival. These were propagated in our greenhouses and delivered on schedule and on budget. The green roof is now a dynamic, thriving landmark of Vancouver’s skyline.

  • Mining Reclamation Using Provenance-Specific Plants

    NATS Nursery provided 35,000 starter plants for a mine site reclamation project in Northern B.C. We are proud of our involvement in restoring the natural environment for future generations to enjoy.
