Alina R. Kouneva Tremblay
Masters of Landscape Architecture Candidate, UBC
B.Environmental Design Hons., UBC
As a Bulgarian - Armenian growing up in Bulgaria, food, family and nature was the fabric of my childhood. When we moved to Vancouver in 1991 that lush, fruit picking, dirt laden villa lifestyle quickly vanished. Small living quarters and busy streets became the norm as I learned a new language and became enthralled in making new friends. It wasn’t until my first visit back home a few years later that a spark ignited in me. The onset and urge to create environments became a passion and set a foot the next 13 years of architectural studies. With the foundation of environmental design, architecture and landscape architecture Alina Gardens was born and the quest to creating landscapes for wildlife and families in the urban context was well on its way.

Our Strata Council contracted Alina Gardens to design and re-plant a portion of our landscaping which was neither effectively designed or properly installed by the developer. In order to minimize maintenance and watering costs, we needed to undergo a substantial renovation. Alina was able to understand our needs of reducing maintenance costs along with recommending a plan that included trees, shrubs and bushes that are native to the west coast and will thrive in our climate. The result is astounding with a wonderful variety of deciduous and coniferous trees, colourful shrubs and berries, and suitable low growth ground cover that are planted to allow for a lush appearance and privacy for our homes. Alina's thorough and professional approach included several initial meetings and visits to discuss and agree upon the most viable and cost effective plan. She also was very careful to ensure that post-install care instructions were clearly laid for us and for our landscaping maintenance contractors. As a result of Alina's understanding of our needs and the greatly improved design, plant selection, soil and fertilizer application, and follow up service, we can now enjoy an attractive and low maintenance view that encourages all , including the local birds and bees, to enjoy our property.

Alina listened to what we wanted and then came back with a plan that was perfect for our needs. She really took the time to figure out our style and find plants that we loved that would also be easy to maintain.

Alina was most professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. She understood our vision, and created a spectacular landscape that was featured in a national magazine, as well as an award winner. I would use Alina again if the opportunity arose.
PATTI WALKER, BOB PAGE + ROCKY | client | 2014
Alina transformed our front yard into a beautiful nature retreat. Not only are we enjoying it, but our resident frogs, birds, butterflies and bees are loving it too! Alina is enthusiastic, creative and knowledgeable. She and her staff are professional, friendly, hard working and a joy to collaborate with. We are very pleased with our beautiful new yard and would recommend Alina Gardens to anyone looking for an innovative and talented landscape designer who works with nature and who cares about the environment.

How gratuitous meeting Alina, who then took my simple plan of a backyard putting green to a beautiful garden incorporating my passion for golf. Alina was most accommodating to my various design modifications ensuring we got it right before breaking ground. We managed a sunken trampoline, with flat stone retaining wall, to pacify kids back yard hobby, two patio areas appeasing my wife’s desires for afternoon tea in the garden and my passion for golf, including a 20’X40’ putting green, a large sand trap and a well disguised 10x 15 golf hitting cage, all nestled around the large stone pathways and the strategic selections of plants and trees. It truly makes for a wonderful place to play or relax.
The detailed design proved invaluable in ensuing contractor did not deviate from the design plan and her continued engagement with contractor ensured all the technical (drainage, soil etc.) and the above ground details were performed as required.
Great vision, excellent aesthetic result, hopefully better golf.
GEORGE, PRESIDENT AT SUN BROTHER | developer client | 2013

BREANNE BIRD| contractor | 2013
I have had the pleasure of working alongside this very ambitious and energetic lady. She takes her work very seriously and is very passionate about bettering people's lives through their connection with plants. She is a great directional leader and embodies her integrity through her work and her passion. Communication is her strength and if something isn't working out the way the customer or employees expect it to, she works it out immediately. Her finished projects are nothing short of spectacular and everyone who works with her feels empowered. The standard of work is very professional from start to finish and completed on time and within the customer's budget. I highly recommend to anyone looking to restore their yards into a place they'll truly love to hire Alina Gardens Inc.
