Calgary-based Emerald Management & Realty, Ltd., provides a selection of rental properties in the city and surrounding areas. Emerald Management & Realty, Ltd., manages multiple types of residential properties, including single-family homes, apartments, and condominiums, along with commercial properties. Because many of the company’s properties are located in urban settings, its clients may have to adapt their landscaping projects to small spaces.

Single-family homes in urban settings often feature small yards, but landscaping experts note these small spaces can make a big impact. Since a front yard is a home’s showcase to the neighborhood, residents can select complementary plants and other elements to reflect their personal style while complementing the home’s architecture. Proportion is key to creating the best look in a small, urban yard. Residents may want to avoid trees or plants that are too tall, as these can overwhelm or obscure the home. Brightly colored flowers can be an eye-catching alternative to traditional shrubs or hedges and help define spaces or borders in a small yard.

In small spaces, residents may opt for stone courtyards or walkways, boarded by flowerbeds. Alternatively, residents can use attractive gravel or pebbles to cover yards. With these approaches, residents can avoid grass maintenance chores and enjoy a beautiful yard that is perfect for urban settings.
