Since its establishment in 2008, Drop
Design Studio has fast developed a
reputation for creating spaces that
are functional and aesthetically pleasing.
Offering a complete range of professional
services in the landscape design and construction
field, a strong focus is placed on designing
outdoor spaces that not only complement the
individual architecture of each home, but also
each client’s individual lifestyle.
Drop Design Studio is looking forward to
entering a number of portfolio jobs in the next
year that will be reviewed for awards by the
Landscape Industries Association of WA (LIAWA).
CITY BEACH LANDSCAPE
With two children under the age of 10, the
priority for the owners of this home was to
create a large area of lawn for them to play on,
and a safe environment around the pool.
As busy working parents, a low-maintenance
garden that had stunning effect in the evenings as
they entertain friends and guests was also a key
factor in the design.
Frameless glass pool fencing was installed,
along with a 2x2m pane of glass in the outdoor
kitchen area that looks out to the pool. This allows
the parents to monitor their children in the pool,
whether inside or outside the home.
Synthetic grass keeps maintenance to a
minimum, while the geometric planting plan
provides a lustre of plants but little upkeep in
terms of ongoing mulching duties.
A sweeping panorama of garden lighting was
installed to establish the garden’s functionality
at night, which is when the outdoor room is
most utilised to entertain. Outdoor lighting
draws attention to the established feature trees,
broadening the vista of the garden and providing
plenty for guests to talk about.
