About Us

The owner of Rhea Dawn Natural Landscapes was inspired when she saw the gap between nature and people widening. She realized that there was an intrinsic value to people having contact with native species in a habitat, and children especially need this contact. Today, the research on this topic is prolific and underscores the value of nature and human beings being together. With more than 20 years of experience in this field, the owner has specialized in playground and day care development. Her designs assist educators with their programs, allowing them to teach outside. She has been a Certified Playground Inspector in Canada since 2014, and she designs playgrounds according to the CSA (Canada Standards Associations) and in accordance with the Children Play Spaces and Equipment Z614-14. She uses natural materials to meet these standards for clients.

Based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Rhea Dawn is an experienced consultant with a demonstrated history of working in the environmental services industry. She is skilled in landscape design with a specialty in nature-based playgrounds and project installation. She has knowledge in working the private sector, government, and non profits on sustainable development, environmental issues, event management, and media relations. She is a strong consulting professional with a diploma focused in gardening and natural landscape services.
