Outside In landscape designers
nspired design, exceptional construction work
and highly organised project management
have earned Outside In an impressive
reputation within the landscape design industry.
Formed in 1998, the company entered the
Landscape Industries Association of Western
Australia’s Awards of Excellence for the first time
in 2010 and was thrilled to be named a finalist in
the Designer – Residential/Commercial – 100sqm
to 500sqm category.
Headed up by director Denise Staffa, Outside In
involves its designers in every aspect of a project,
while a solid network of tradespeople enables it
to deliver outstanding construction work. As well
as creating amazing landscapes, Outside In also
produces custom-made, laser-cut screens and light
boxes, available in an array of original designs.
Designed and project managed by Denise Staffa
from Outside In, this landscape was transformed
into a functional outdoor living area.
Merbau timber decking was installed in the
alfresco area and extended outside to create an
additional sitting and entertaining area. It was
continued to the pool to add function and make
the area appear bigger than it is.
Planter boxes with built-in seats were
constructed outside the alfresco area, while a
custom-made, stainless-steel outdoor kitchen
was installed. It features a range hood, glass-door
bar fridge and slimline Electrolux barbecue.
The pool was given a makeover with new quartz,
water-line tiles; washed aggregate poured concrete
in Black Sheoak with matching bullnose capping;
LED lighting and a frameless glass fence. The spa and
water feature were also re-tiled, while honed silver
travertine tiles were added to the built-in seat.
The simple foliage plantings and artificial turf
allow for easy maintenance, while custom-made
light boxes add to the space’s contemporary style.
At the front of the home, washed aggregate
poured concrete in Black Sheoak and simple
foliage plantings link the area to the rear space.
