Karrinyup | CultivArt LANDSCAPE DESIGN
multi award-winning boutique
landscape design company, CultivArt
has won the Overall Award of Excellence
three times in the last decade, and more
recently the Gardens up to 250sqm category at the
Landscape Industry Awards.
Owner/designer Janine Mendel specialises in
residential landscape design, with a philosophy that
a house should look like it has been planted in the
garden. She believes that a well-designed garden
should be functional, beautiful and unique yet
respect the era and architecture of the house. Janine
is the author of Quintessentially Oz (Fremantle
Press, 2006) and the new Urban Sanctuary
(Hardie Grant, 2012). This latest release is a timely
masterclass in small garden design, and is available
at all good book stores and from CultivArt directly.
A subtropical paradise with a seamless indoor/
outdoor connection makes the best use of this long
narrow site. On this occasion Janine also designed
the house, which gave her the opportunity to use
every square millimetre of space.
The house was situated towards the rear of the
site so that the internal living areas faced towards
the northern aspect at the front. The garage was
situated as far forward as possible to provide a
walled courtyard effect at the front of the house,
while still allowing in the northern sun.

place to entertain or relax. Photo by Janine Mendel.
