CultivArt Landscape Design owner Janine
Mendel knows a thing or two about
gardens. She has, after all, designed more
than 800 striking landscapes and won a string
of accolades, including three Best Overall Design
awards from the Landscape Industries Association
of Western Australia.
Attention to detail and extensive experience
are among the secrets to Janine’s success. A solid
understanding of what constitutes good design
allows her to create beautiful outdoor spaces that
complement a home’s architecture.
CultivArt’s design service covers all outdoor
elements, including swimming pools, water
features, pavilions and hardscaping, as well as full
planting schedules and lighting design.
MT CLAREMONT LANDSCAPE
The owners of this 1300sqm property requested
a functional and contemporary garden that still
respected the newly renovated circa-1900 home.
Originally containing a rarely used fibreglass
swimming pool, the garden was transformed into
an area for lounging and enjoying the winter sun.
To bridge the gap between old and new, two
terraces were created between the dining area and
the existing outdoor kitchen, one metre below.
Separating one steep level into two allowed for the
creation of a north-facing verandah.
Existing timber trim details were copied to link
the new landscape with the architecture of the
home. An ornamental grapevine sprawls across
the verandah roof, providing shade in summer.
The mid-level area contains a stunning water
feature, while three steps below this level is an
inviting outdoor dining and lounge area.
