Landscaping Designs in Perth, Western Australia

Perth gardens and alfrescos are heavily focused on outdoor living. There is generally a large outdoor area dedicated to entertaining (the alfresco) where families and friends can hang out while enjoying the WA sun. Pergolas, timber decking and paved areas are common place in the Perth landscape garden for those seeking low-maintenance landscaping solutions. Another popular landscaping addition in Perth is water features; including bird baths, swimming pools and spas. Water features are popular in Perth backyards because it ‘cools down’ the backyard in the hot WA summer.

Landscaping designs in Perth often involve an informal relaxed layout, with the use of curves, rounded garden beds and various structures. Plants are also often in relaxed groupings rather than straight hedges – your plants can be clumped as they would be in nature, with random groupings and random arrangements. The use of timber in the backyard is also considered to be very Australiana, to provide an additional natural feel.

Common Perth Garden Plants

With the WA climate often being harsh and water regulations in place, it is encouraged in many Perth backyards to have native WA plants, although some exotic plant species do grow well in Perth.  Here’s a popular list of common Perth plants to give an idea of what you may like in your backyard:

  • Eucalyptus
  • Grevillea
  • Wattle
  • Lilly Pilly
  • Bottlebrush
  • Kangaroo Paw
  • Gymea Lilly
  • Carex Grass
  • Lomandra
  • Native Violets
  • Blue Fescue Grass
  • Westringia
  • Austromyrtus
  • Angophora
  • Grass Trees
