Perth | Principal Landscapes LANDSCAPE DESIGN
With a generous north-facing backyard, Principal
Landscapes created a contemporary outdoor space
to reflect the recently built home.
Designed as a space for a young family to
relax in, a concrete pool was installed to one
side of the yard.
A raised composite timber deck in silver/grey
sits at one end, perfectly complementing the
colour of the imported Italian marble paving that
surrounds the pool. The paving is sandblasted to
provide suitable grip for around the pool, while
the same stone with a polished finish was used
to clad a feature raised planter box alongside the
deck. It was also used for the water-feature wall
with a split-face finish that provides a beautiful
shadow effect at night.
The contrasting jarrah screen with laser-cut
wall art panels provides an attractive backdrop
to the deck area.
Masonry walls create raised gardens that are
planted with Pittosporum Screenmaster and
Magnolia Little Gem to help screen the property’s
high fences. Rhoeo and Acacia Limelight were
also selected for their bright foliage colour that
contrasts the jarrah screen and stone planter box.
The finishing touches to this family-friendly
retreat include uplighting, a glass pool fence and a
resort-style outdoor shower.
