We recently had the pleasure of working with Justin of the Burgoo Food For Comfort restaurants to revamp their rustically charming patios at all 4 of their locations: Point Grey, North Vancouver, Mount Pleasant (Main Street), and Kitsilano. Burgoo is famous, not only for their delicious ‘straight from mom’s kitchen’ cuisine, but also their use of natural finishes and their down-home-country-cabin aesthetic.
To work within their existing design, we wanted to create a laid-back and relaxed feel. By using reclaimed wood planters, wine barrels and hanging baskets we were able to create a look for the patio so comforting it could rival their delicious Macaroni & More!
Burgoo strives to be reminiscent of simpler times, so take a moment out of your stressful day to go relax and have a drink on one of their newly redesigned patios. Their summer menu boasting daily drink special ranging from $4 – $6 is sure to leave your palate and your wallet satisfied – don’t forget to check out the plants while you’re there!

Without the maintenance, water requirements or risk of bugs, moulds, and allergens associated with live plants, artificial foliage offers countless decor options from patio accents to large landscapes. Replica plants are also a great option for sparse or hard to care for areas within your natural landscaping.
One challenge when working with artificial plants in exterior applications is sunlight. Ultra violet damage from extended exposure to sunlight causes regular fabric foliage to fade and turn that unsightly bluish-green colour.
“Aghast!” you ask, “How do I prevent my décor from looking faded and cheap?”
No worries, Greenscape can help! Our knowledgeable team will ensure your exterior décor always looks its best and will allow you to enjoy your décor for years to come.
