A fixture in Perth landscape architecture for almost 40 years, Tim Davies Landscaping has become synonymous with quality. Attracting and developing talented and innovative staff, TDL has designed and built some of the most exciting landscapes Perth has to offer.
Among TDL’s recent projects is this tasteful and balanced Floreat landscape featuring a pool design that will last the test of time. Subtly contrasted behind the character home, this rear garden has undergone a contemporary renovation. A tranquil fully tiled concrete pool with a built-in seating ‘window’ sits alongside a generous lawn, separated by a planted moat. Existing foliage hangs over the new structures, and a beloved existing mulberry tree gives the newly built form a sense of permanence and belonging.
Another recent TDL project is the celebrated architectural Vodka Palace. This project too is an exercise in balance. A desirable designer hybrid, the Vodka Palace itself is both brutal and tranquil. To meet the home, the landscape features a hardy, naturalistic planting combined with material selections either recycled or chosen to develop a patina, softening the sharp angles and heavy structures of the home. The space can be adapted to be both cavernous and airy, allowing opportunities to open up the interiors and draw in the naturalistic landscape, making the space into a cohesive native escape.
This final TDL landscape is a case study in optimising a small space. Working to bridge levels in the architecture and the sloping site, the garden’s asymmetric floating stairs, warm textural planting, and focal point water feature create high impact and a sense of arrival. The design cleverly utilises still water to mirror a large frangipani, extending the space. Dense planting selections of mixed heights fill out the garden, packing a green punch in a small area and separating the landscape from the street beyond.
