Goal: The design firm West Parks and Associates brought in Terra Firma to bring a softness to compliment their design for The York Regional Government Building project in Toronto.

The Challenge: West Parks and Associates hired Lisa Aiken for her expertise in corporate applications. Because this was a public space, health and safety issues were paramount and Lisa needed to adhere to strict regulations.


The Solution: Lisa, suggested specific high-end artificial trees for the following reasons:

  • No maintenance involved
  • No natural elements such as soil which reduces any mould or mildew build-up.
  • Non-allergenic.
  • The end-result looks real. In fact, as Lisa was putting together the end product, members of the public kept commenting: "what beautiful trees, I hope they hired good gardeners to look after them".
  • Avoid mess with soil, water and dropped leaves.
  • Lisa and her team of specialized professionals work to strict safety standards.



Special Issues:
In public spaces, the safety issue is always paramount. The trees and urns were created by a special industrialized process used in commercial projects. Because some of the trees were as high as 15 feet and needed to be stabilized properly, appropriate weight was added to the base in order to avoid accidental tipping



The Result:
High-end artificial trees added beauty to the interior landscape without compromising health and safety
