XEN specializes in ecological solutions.
Our nursery was established after identifying the need for endemic plants in the Okanagan region. Okanagan residents are among the highest water consumers in Canada, creating an inherent need for endemic plants, which are adapted to local climate conditions, for both residential and commercial landscaping projects. By incorporating locally adapted plants into landscaping projects, business and homeowners will experience savings through reduced water consumption, as well as providing habitat mosaics for local Okanagan fauna. In addition to endemic Okanagan plants, we offer other xeriscape plant options such as drought resistant ornamental grasses.
We also offer several services related to ecological restoration and land reclamation. With decades of experience in construction and design there is no job too difficult for us to take on. Through collaboration with our sister company On The Mark Locates Ltd we are able to meet all of your project needs.
We are a company that cares about the preservation and maintenance of biodiversity. While we have a local focus in propagating and growing endemic Okanagan plants in our greenhouse and nursery, we adopt a global approach to our work, searching for universal ecological solutions that can be applied across ecosystems and urban environments.
Our practice combines scientific knowledge with practical experience to best establish solutions for any modern day ecological issue.
