Home' Outdoors : WAs Best Outdoors and Gardens 2012 Contents Waterwise verge
Antony Konig Landscapes recommends planting
your verge with natives or other hardy types
(and perhaps leaving a space for car parking).
It will set off your house and show that you’re
doing something positive for the environment.
Succulents are the ultimate waterwise plants
and offer strong shapes and interesting colours.
The plants pictured are Aloe ‘Southern Cross’,
Senecio serpens (blue chalk sticks), Echeveria
‘Crinoline’ (behind), Tradescantia pallida (purple
heart) and Cotyledon orbiculata var. oblonga
‘Macrantha’. Antony Konig Landscapes (08) 9430

Outdoor entertaining has made way for true
outdoor living, as shown in this design by
Envious Landscapes. The outdoor room is now
a year-round chef’s kitchen, elegant dining
room, family room and home theatre in one.
Art, rugs and cushions offer colour and comfort
while separate function and mood lighting
works with integrated sound and entertainment
systems to create the right mood and feel for
the occasion. (The artwork is Southerly Swell by
Michael McCarthy.) Envious Landscapes 0437
