There’s something truly special about enjoying your garden with family and friends. When it comes to residential landscaping, Perth residents love nothing better than having fun and relaxing outdoors. We have the perfect weather and climate for it. So, it stands to reason that more and more Perth people are creating brilliant outdoor entertainment areas. Let’s take a look at what to keep in mind before you begin.
The first thing you need to do is to think about your budget, ideas and goals. Ask yourself the following questions:
- What is the budget for your outdoor entertainment area?
- Who will use the space? Will there be pets or children enjoying the area?
- Are you interested in a particular style or design?
Once you have the answers to these questions, you can then move onto the design itself.
There are some key landscaping Perth design considerations to bear in mind when you’re designing your new outdoor space. Having knowledge of these means that your outdoor entertainment area will be as good as it can be.
Key design considerations are:
- Flow/integration with your home
- Ease of access
- Planning for the winter and summer weather
It’s crucial to keep these design fundamentals at the forefront of your mind to create a beautiful, comfortable and functional landscape.
When you’re planning your outdoor entertainment area, an important aspect is, of course, the landscaping. For the best design and finish possible, it’s always a good idea to employ a professional to take care of this aspect of your entertaining area. Whether you decide to do it yourself or to employ a landscaper, it’s a good idea to bear in mind the following:
- Put plants around your garden borders to make the place look green and healthy throughout the summer months.
- Lay a lawn to create a natural functional space.
- Use native trees and plants that won’t wither and die in the heat.
Now that you have everything in order, you can move on to the outdoor kitchen and furniture.
