Home' Outdoors : WAs Best Outdoors and Gardens 2010-11 Contents WA’s Best Outdoors & Gardens 2011 135
With an innovative approach to design,
Mondo Landscapes has garnered a
reputation for excellence in Perth.
The company is founded on a belief that a
garden is more than just an assemblage of plants
and flowers – it’s a place for people, where friends
and family can come together.
Formed in 2004 by Debbie Taylor and Beverley
Harrison, the company works closely with clients
to come up with designs that suit their lifestyle as
well as the architecture of their home.
Both designers have diplomas in horticulture
and landscape design, and Debbie’s background
in the nursery industry has given her a sound
knowledge of indoor and outdoor plants.
Mondo Landscapes creates gardens in a range
of styles, from tropical, resort and Mediterranean
to contemporary, minimalist and formal. The
company won four awards at the 2008 Landscape
Industries of Western Australia Awards of
Excellence and was a finalist at this year’s event.
CANNING VALE LANDSCAPE
The owners of this home were eager to renovate
their garden themselves, but were hesitant to
go ahead without proper planning. They asked
Mondo Landscapes to come up with a design,
which they then implemented over several stages.
The clean lines of the house are reflected in
defined sections of planting, while raised garden
beds add texture.
Waterwise plants, such as variegated flax lily,
frangipani and magnolia St Mary were selected,
making the yard easy to care for.
At the front, a stone-clad wall with bullnosing
gives the owners a place to perch and watch the
street, while richly coloured timber decking
emphasises the exterior wall colour. This aesthetic
flows through to the back of the home, where the
alfresco area decking creates a spacious feel.
The overall result proves that DIY success
can be achieved, providing there’s plenty of
professional help in the planning stages.
Richly coloured timber decking flows
from the front garden to the rear,
creating a sense of spaciousness.
