Welcome to another exciting post from Perth Landscapes, the company where “The Art of Landscaping is Perfected in Perth.” Today, we delve into a topic that holds paramount importance for every aspiring green thumb and garden aficionado in our beautiful city: What are the best plants for landscaping in Perth’s climate?
The Climate Factor
Firstly, let’s address the elephant in the room—Perth’s unique climate. Our Mediterranean climate can be both a blessing and a challenge. Hot, dry summers and wet, mild winters mean we have to be clever with our plant choices. A garden designed by Perth Landscapes doesn’t just look stunning; it thrives in our local environment. After all, we’ve been honing our craft since 2011, when multi-award-winning landscape designer Alex Cameron founded this company.
Tried-and-True Plants for Perth
We recommend native species like Kangaroo Paw, Bottlebrush, and Grevillea. These are not just beautiful but also hardy and well-adapted to our climate. Succulents like Agave and Aloe Vera also flourish here, requiring minimal water. If you’re looking for something luscious and green, consider opting for Zoysia or Buffalo grass for your lawn.
What Our Clients Say
Now, we could tell you all day about how expertly we select plants for your landscaping project, but why not let some of our satisfied clients speak?
Peter Harrison, a recent client, stated: “Alex recently designed/landscaped my front and rear yards, including retaining walls, fence, paving, reticulation and native trees/plants. The yard was in a terrible state (sand pit!) but we wanted to maintain a similar structure with a low-maintenance outcome. Alex managed this exactly to our expectations.”
And Zoe Gibson exclaims: “It’s been almost two years, and my garden is thriving! Would definitely use his services again and highly recommend him.”
Water Efficiency and Sustainability
We understand the importance of water efficiency, particularly given Perth’s climate. Plants like Rosemary, Lavender, and native species can reduce your water bills and your environmental footprint. Marie Edwards, another satisfied customer, lauded our approach: “He was very professional, easy going, caring and efficient! Excellent workmanship! Alex also offers his services even after completion to ensure everything is going well.”
