CultivArt Landscape Design is a multi-
award winning, boutique business
owned and operated by inspired designer,
Setting a new standard in outdoor style,
CultivArt provides a comprehensive design service
including detailed drawings, planting schedules
and a scope of works. CultivArt works with several
excellent landscaping companies to install the
finished landscape design if required.
Janine's design philosophies are to pay careful
attention to the practicality of the garden, reflect the
architectural lines of the house and use interesting
angles to make smaller spaces seem larger.
Every design incorporates innovation and style
-- the essence of a CultivArt outdoor space.
While her designs are generally very
structured, Janine also believes plants are
extremely important elements of any landscape.
"I believe that a house should look like it's
been planted in the garden," she says. " e
landscape should not be just the bits leftover
at the end."
Janine's work has seen her win the Overall
Landscape Award of Excellence on three separate
occasions at the Landscape Industries Association
of WA awards.
She also published a hardcover coffee table
book in 2006, profiling 14 of her contemporary
gardens, and will publish her second book in 2010.
Contemporary and subtropical in style,
this gorgeous garden has good structure,
and is softened with mixed, mostly waterwise
e garage takes up more than half the
frontage of the already narrow (10m) site, but
Janine worked with the space to create a
sense of invitation and a journey to the front door.
A staggered timber boardwalk and a modern
take on a gatehouse create a defined entry
statement. e gatehouse's internal decking is
angled to match the alfresco decking, which in
turn, was designed to reflect the angle of the
home's internal freestanding staircase.
THE ALFRESCO area's northern
aspect allows the owners to enjoy the
sun in winter, while remaining protected
from the harsh summer rays.
THE GARDEN has a lush,
inviting vibe that provides a
sensational indoor-outdoor feel.
