Popular Garden Design Elements Adelaide Residents Include In Their New Garden Makeover.
During the initial concept design meeting with Tony Stanton, part of the discussion will involve what features or elements will form part of the landscape design.
Often these features will become a focal point within the garden and depending on how central they’ll be to the overall design, they may be the element that’s considered first before working out where other elements are located within the space.
The following will hopefully give you some inspiration, but don’t despair if you feel a little overwhelmed. Experienced landscape designers such as Tony have a wealth of design knowledge putting clients vision or goals down on paper, including the garden design elements you’re after to produce landscape design plans that once brought to life become a Living Picture you’ll enjoy for many years to come.
Many people would like to include a pool as part of their new backyard garden makeover. Unless you have a very large space, most pools should be thought of as ‘splash pool’, a great place to cool down, but you won’t be training for the Olympics.
Courtyard sized swimming pools start at 4.5M x 2.70M with a maximum depth of about 1.60M, so may become one of the design elements to include, even if you’re limited with space.
Often, when not engaging landscape designers, pools end up in the corner of a garden. When you consider the costs of them, your swimming pool should be a major focal point of interest, not just stuck right next to a fence because you’re trying to put too many features into your garden. Note too, fibreglass pools are great and much cheaper than custom designed concrete swimming pools. There’s a huge range of sizes, colours and styles to choose from.
Gazebos, Pergolas, Bali Huts & Outdoor Alfresco Areas
Outdoor living areas are one of the most popular garden design elements Adelaide residents want included as part of their new outdoor makeover. Depending on what you’ve chosen as your garden style including an area to sit and relax, entertain friends or to bring the family together may be worth considering.
Resort or tropical garden styles can include Bali huts, Mediterranean themes are popular with pergolas and a natural or modern style can include custom designed rooms you can enjoy outside as you look at your delightful garden makeover.
Garden design elements Adelaide home owners request that include water fall into 3 categories. Larger more ornate looking fountains placed into a well, or pond, smaller more decorative or ornamental products and lastly, swimming pool water features that are custom made to suit the garden style or theme.
Note, a point to bring up with Tony during the initial concept session: Have you considered water loss due to evaporation, especially during Adelaide’s hot Summer periods. You’ll be amazed at just how much water is lost, even over a week during a run of mild weather days with no rain.
One of the garden design elements Adelaide home owners often don’t consider until they go looking for landscape design ideas can be one of the most delightful, and that’s a feature plant. There’s an amazing array with different shaped foliage, colours of flowers, size and can suit every style you care to name.
With the use of garden lighting installed as part of your landscape design, trees, palms and shrubs can be effective features of your outdoor vista.
With his horticulture knowledge and experience, Tony Stanton will be able to suggest some options during the concept design meeting, as a main focal point or to complement another feature.
Man Made Using Natural Materials
Left to last for a reason, the most popular garden design elements included as part of garden design makeovers across Adelaide are custom features made using stone, hardwood and steel. Paving and retaining walls can provide a focus in their own right, creating landings, paths, division between two areas or as part of the other elements discussed above.
Fire pits, privacy screens and walls, timber decking and pizza ovens are all features made with natural materials that can become part of your outdoor living spaces, to be enjoyed by the whole family and friends.
