Butchart Garden Stairway

I want my garden to look like this! Around 100 years ago Jennie Butchart, the wife of a Portland Cement magnate, decided to turn their exhausted quarry pit into a sunken garden. The original garden was completed in 1921 Today, over a million bedding plants a year are used throughout the gardens and over a million visitors visit Butchart Gardens annually. It's well worth the trip.
