Sirocco Landscapes creates Softscaping and Xeriscaping masterpieces that compliment Kamloops’ climate.

Softscaping and Xeriscaping by Sirocco Landscapes

During certain times of the year, Kamloops really lives up to its desert status. Planning a landscape that will thrive in our diverse, arid climate is important to Sirocco Landscapes. For this reason, we offer xeriscaping – a type of landscaping that is designed to reduce your water demands while still creating a beautiful space. Xeriscaping is a special form of landscaping that is designed using drought resistant, native plants and an intelligent irrigation system that uses just the water necessary, nothing more. Not only does this reduce your water bill, it will also cut down on weed growth.

Xeriscaping and softscaping refer to all of the living elements that make up your landscaping, such as plants, flowering shrubs, trees, flowers, decorative native grasses, edible flowers, herbs, and vegetables. Sirocco Landscapes takes into consideration Kamloops’ natural ecosystem when embarking on both xeriscaping and softscaping projects. In addition to focusing on native plants (which we do while softscaping), we add in plants that either conserve water naturally, or require much less of it to live. As an added benefit, xeriscaping often requires significantly less maintenance!

Turf Installation and Permanent Landscaping

From year to year your landscaping will be updated – perennial plants and flowers will be replaced and annuals will react differently to changing weather patterns. However, you can rely on your lawn and permanent accessories for consistency. Permanent fixtures include decorative rocks, sculptures, planters, as well real and artificial turf. For best results, these features should receive regular maintenance throughout the year.

Trees, Shrubs, and Perennials

Kamloops provides a diverse climate, suitable for a wide selection of trees, shrubs and perennials. Based on your style and preferences, we will suggest the best options for your landscaping project. Some of Kamloops’ more prolific trees are Ponderosa pine, Montane spruce, and Douglas fir. Not only do they provide much needed shade, but they also purify the air, removing carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. Shrubs, such as elderberry, juniper, and magnolia all thrive in Kamloops’ climate, as do perennials such as asters, irises, delphiniums and hundreds more.

Annuals and Edible Landscaping

Including annual plants is a fantastic way to incorporate seasonal colour while infusing your own style year after year. Annuals such as dahlia, gladiolus, geraniums, dichondra, and calendula all love Kamloops’ arid climate. For those who love to cook and bake, incorporating edible landscaping is a must. For example, cherries, apples, lavender, or wild bergamot can all be grown in the comfort of your own garden.

Five Star Resort! We asked Sirocco Landscaping for a five-star hotel resort feel and they did not disappoint! We had a wish list of swimming pool, fire pit, hot tub, and covered outdoor kitchen. Spencer brought his creative flair and attention to detail to our backyard and has totally transformed it. During the build phase, Spencer and his team were extremely tolerant with us as we tweaked and made small extra requests from the project. We are totally satisfied with their work and will be using them again to landscape the rest of our yard.

Sirocco Landscapes did a huge makeover of our back yard last year. We love it! They quoted the job first and were by far the best price! The whole Sirocco team is experienced, professional and reliable. They listened to what we wanted and presented some great ideas to improve our vision! They are creative problem solvers that do what they say they’ll do! I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them. We have a new project for them this year!

The Sirocco crew that executed the project was fantastic in every way: professional, courteous, friendly, and talented. They took the time to address questions I had, worked hard to meet the date I needed the project done by, and explained everything I needed to know about plant and water feature maintenance. I look forward to using Sirocco again for future projects, and I can’t recommend them highly enough.

We have had our yard done by the great crew from Sirocco. Spencer was very helpful with ideas, type of materials to use and always available. They were very professional and prompt. Always left the area clean after the day’s work was done. I would highly recommend them!

We worked with Spencer at Sirocco Landscapes on establishing a unique drought tolerant “meadow garden”, garden beds and paved driveway and courtyard at our newly built home. From the detailed design to the implementation, they were communicative, flexible and considering the pandemic, able to stick to a reasonable timeline. We will use them again in the future and would recommend them to anyone looking for a comprehensive landscape company.
