This is a close-up of the zinc bar tabletop in the second photo above; the table seats two when pushed against the railing and four when pulled out. It's a great place to start the day with coffee and end it with wine and apples, Partridge says. From here you can watch the annual Celebration of Light, Vancouver's international fireworks competition.
"I kept the planting to a minimum on the bar table by selecting echeverias to mimic the blue tone of the sky and skyline and then added the blue glass mulch to mimic the glass of the buildings and give the planting a bit of sparkle," Partridge says. She used teal and blue stones, also purchased at Southlands Nursery. If you're looking for glass stones, she recommends checking with local florists or landscape companies that sell landscape stone and gravel.
