The southern bank of the Strait of Georgia, now known as White Rock, was settled by the Coast Salish tribe known as the Semiahmoo. Over the years, White Rock transformed from home to the tribe Semiahmoo, to stopping grounds for prospectors to an area of summer homes to what eventually became year-round homes. White Rock has since blossomed and become a city with coastal homes and highrises, with people flocking to reside or visit. With the current development of smaller family homes, townhomes, and highrises, we are seeing a growth in artificial turf sales and some innovative ideas for synthetic grass. Smaller yards, balconies, or sometimes rooftops being the only outdoor areas to sit, relax and play, people have become creative constructing beautiful outdoor spaces over concrete.
