Landscape Design Tips for your Outdoor Area in Perth



In this latest article, we provide some handy tips on choosing a landscape design for your outdoor area in Perth. We’ve worked with many customers around the metro area in Perth, to help improve the amenity of their backyard, as well as beautify their outdoor area. With our fantastic lifestyle in Perth, enjoying our outdoor area can often be top of our list as one of the ways to relax and spend quality time with family and friends.

Does your outdoor area need a facelift?

We have helped  many customers transform their backyards from neglected wastelands into attractive landscapes that are ideal for kicking back and relaxing in. All you need to do to achieve the same result is to pick a landscaping style, decide on a budget, choose your brick paving materials and get Gio Group to do the hard work!

What landscaping style are you hoping to achieve?

There are many different landscaping looks to choose from and it is important to choose one that fits well with your lifestyle. Perhaps you’re looking for an outdoor area that is stylish, yet practical and easy to maintain. If you’ll be spending a lot of time in your backyard you will want it to be a pleasant place to spend time in. Some looks that might appeal include a tropical theme, a modern and contemporary feel, or a Mediterranean style look.

What is my landscaping budget?

You’ll want to decide on your landscaping budget. Your home and landscape project could be a total makeover project, or it could involve installing a feature such as a pool, or it could simply be a replacement of old unattractive pavers with new stylish materials.

Decide on your final result, and work backwards from there. Your budget will also determine the paving materials that you choose. Plus you’ll need to factor in other costs, such as if you want to have a feature wall, retaining walls, art pieces, undercover areas, shaded areas, alfresco areas, or patios.

A wise choice of outdoor features will enhance your outdoor area and add value to your property in years to come.

What paving materials should I choose?

At Gio Group, we’ve completed many different paving projects using materials ranging from natural stone, limestone, granite and slate. We recommend sourcing high quality paving bricks in Perth from quality suppliers such as Eco Stone,Remastone,Bonita Stone,Mataka Stone and Brikmakers for your next landscaping project.

Consider the materials that you’ve chosen and find out from the paving supplier the maintenance required to keep the paving materials in good condition. It might be that the materials require just a wash and rinse with water, or may require some light detergents to keep it clean.

Pools and Features

Many of our customers have installed pools, especially popular during the summer time to keep the whole family cool. You’ll want to use paving materials that are well suited to a wet area, that provide a non slip surface, with coping that is rounded off to ensure areas that are safe for the family.

Having a feature wall or a water feature as the central piece in your outdoor area can enhance an area, and provide a focal point for attention. Consider the positioning of your garden beds and whether you require any structural enhancements such as limestone edging to demarcate between grassed areas and gardens.

We have worked with a lot of our customers to transform unattractive outdoor areas into yards that are beautifully landscaped, neat and easy to maintain, often using natural paving materials that have a contemporary and classy look.  So if you have a backyard wilderness that you’d like to turn into something a little bit more special, talk to the team at Gio Group about your project ideas.
