Landscapes WA has evolved since its inception in 2005 into a multi-disciplinary residential and commercial landscape company with a balanced mixture of professional experience and youthful flair.
It carves out the most beautiful landscaped environments thanks to immense knowledge, technical ability, excellent customer service and in-depth understanding of customer needs. Whether you have a resort, retail outlet, corporate campus, a home or an entire neighborhood, Landscapes WA will transform your ordinary surroundings into something extraordinary.
Thanks to the design expertise of Nic Russell and Ryan Pontifex from Landscapes WA, the owners of this recently upgraded Perth home now have a garden of equal stature to their recently completed home renovation.
Although they had a fantastic garden, they wanted to bring the outdoor areas up to the same high standard. They wanted to have a ‘wow’ factor that would entice family and friends into different areas of the garden, and they wanted to create interest in the garden without increasing the amount of time needed to maintain it.
Of contemporary design, all the garden areas have a wonderful feeling of warmth thanks to the abundance of natural materials, such as travertine stone paving, stone cladding and timber decking, combined with a lush and leafy palette of plants.
The emphasis on water adds to this feeling of being embraced by nature. The front water features, without being overstated, create an amazing entrance, especially with the lighting at night.
Sitting either side of the timber boardwalk that leads to the front door, the matching ponds make a lasting first impression. In the rear garden, a water feature is also the focal point of the design. This is a multi-level feature, which includes a koi pond.
Another feature of the rear garden is the ‘sunken’ conversation area, incorporating built-in benches, an ethanol-fuelled fire pit and silver travertine pavers in a random French pattern. The same travertine was used for the informal stepping stone path from the washed aggregate path in the front garden to the rear conversation nook.
Nic and the Landscapes WA team loved working on this project and have been back many times to share a drink and enjoy the garden.
