Your pool area is arguably one of the most important outdoor areas of your living space. It gets so much use during the hot months that it’s crucial to ensure that your pool landscaping is on point. When you think about the word ‘landscaping’ your mind probably conjures up thoughts of planting bushes and flowers strategically around your yard. While this is an aspect of landscaping and aesthetics, there so much more that goes into planning your pool area.
Perth gardens come in so many different shapes and sizes. They often have significant changes in level too which can be a real annoyance when it comes to landscaping. It can be a very difficult job to make the best use of your outdoor space without employing an expert team to help. The very nature of our terrain creates some very intriguing design challenges as well as constraints.
Most gardens that involve significant level changes require a system of retaining walls to contain the soil on each level. There are various different types of retaining materials available. Just speak to our friendly team to find out more. When it comes to landscaping, Perth-based Landscape By Design is the local leader in our field.
Our retaining walls will add to the aesthetic appeal of your outdoor space as well as being functional. The following options are available:
Steel retaining looks great and comes in a range of finishes to look as shiny or as rustic as you like. Steel ages well and can also be powder coated in a range of colours. Steel retaining is a strong and durable choice.
Panel and Post Retaining
You may have heard of panel and post retaining. This prefabricated concrete retaining wall system is reinforced with galvanized steel. Panels are fitted in between the posts as the name suggests. And, because this retaining is fast and straightforward to install, it’s available for a great price. It’s also suitable for use in areas with limited space.
Bricks are the traditional yet contemporary choice and are popular throughout the Perth area. Brick retaining can be matched to your home’s finish. It’s also cost effective and will remain looking great for many years to come.
Reconstituted limestone is durable and adaptable. Limestone retaining is a combination of cement and crushed limestone and is most often used for load-bearing and/or high walls. With a range of different finishes available, limestone retaining is a popular choice.
