A new home in prestigious Mt Pleasant called for a secure, contemporary garden that could be enjoyed all year round, no matter what the weather.
Award-winning Perth landscape designers, Springgreen Landscapes started by designing an inviting new entry to the home. A front wall was built and finished in a concrete render with a custom black metal gate and detailing for contrast. Large concrete steppers lead people to the main entrance across a sea of river stones in various colours and sizes. Mediterranean and native plants further add interest and appeal to the entry.
At the rear of the home the focus was to create a beautiful space to enjoy all year round that would also move attention away from a large, imposing granny flat. Work began by softening the building by painting it a dark grey. Spotted Gum vertical timber slats were used as a feature screen to draw the eye upward – this would minimise the visual impact of the granny flat. Raised garden beds of varying heights were created in corten steel, complementing the warmth of the Spotted Gum screening and in-built seating area. A Grevillea ‘Orange marmalade’ was planted beside the fire-pit area which would eventually create a cosy corner for nights by the fire as the Greviliea grew to full height.
Incorporating the clients’ own visions and concepts, Springgreen Landscapes implement innovative design techniques that enable the indoor and outdoor areas to become a seamless living environment.
