Landscapes WA LANDSCAPE DESIGN
andscapes WA is a leading
professional landscape company
that provides a complete service
from design to construction.
Each stage of the landscaping process
is personally managed by the company’s
qualified, in-house staff, meaning nothing is
outsourced to contractors.
Landscapes WA specialises in all things
horticultural, from lawns and reticulation to
decking and alfresco areas.
Since its establishment in 2005, Landscapes
WA has formed strong relationships with leading
building companies such as Dale Alcock Homes,
earning the title of their preferred landscaper.
This simple yet visually appealing landscape was
carried out by Landscapes WA in conjunction with
Dale Alcock Homes.
The key requirement of this display home’s
brief was to demonstrate how a low-maintenance
garden can be functional while radiating style.
Another directive was to make use of every
space in the backyard.
To demonstrate how a range of functional
zones can be implemented while maximising the
available space, Landscapes WA created a design
that went beyond the norm.
A basketball court was implemented to
create interest in the different spaces throughout
the yard. It also lends itself to keeping children
or teenagers occupied while the adults entertain
in the decked alfresco area on the other side
of the home.
These spaces serve different purposes, but
they are linked by Merbau-decked boardwalks
that have been built around statement pieces
such as large urns illuminated with garden
lighting. Granite steppers connect the deck
to the basketball court.
At the front of the home, decking was laid over
split levels leading to the front door, creating
a dramatic entrance while subtle low-maintenance
plantings and pine bark-mulched garden beds hint
towards the coastal location.
Brick rendered planters to the rear of the yard
hold a range of pretty yet easy-to-care-for plants
including dracaenas, strelitzias and native grasses.
Completing the gardens, Landscaping WA hung
some screen art from Eco Outdoor, which can be
painted any colour to match your decor.
