Lanescapes

Although we are preparing to landscape our property at our laneway house, and that includes planting attractive plants alongside the lane in “front” of our new home, the lane itself will remain as it is.

Kind of ugly.

There’s pavement down the entire width of the lane, with people’s garages backing onto it.  No one really pays much attention to how the lanes look.

But at one time they did.  According to this story in the Vancouver Observer, at one time long ago (2002), the city wanted to countrify our city lanes.  As illustrated by the blog This City Life and the National Post article they quoted, laneways can look almost…bucolic.

laneWouldn’t that be lovely?  To step out of our front door into a grassy walkway?

Let’s hope this experiment succeeds, and block by block we reclaim our laneways. The city should be paying attention.  As the Vancouver Observer oberved:

How is that not awesome?
