1. Outdoor Entertaining Areas

One of the top landscaping trends in Perth for 2024 is the creation of stunning outdoor entertaining areas. Homeowners are looking to extend their living spaces outdoors to enhance value and appeal and create a seamless transition between indoor and outdoor areas more than ever before.

These spaces often include practical features like pergolas, outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and comfortable seating arrangements.

3. Sustainable Design

We’re seeing more Perth residents embracing sustainable landscaping practices such as rainwater harvesting, composting, and using recycled materials. This eco-conscious approach helps conserve resources and promotes a greener lifestyle. Rainwater harvesting involves collecting rainwater from roofs or other surfaces and storing it in tanks or barrels for later use. If you’re new to gardening, composting involves turning organic waste, such as food scraps and garden clippings, into nutrient-rich soil for your plants. If you’re looking to create a more sustainable landscape but are budget-conscious, using recycled materials such as bricks, pavers, or timber for your hardscape designs is a great way to reduce waste and save money.

4. Smart Irrigation Systems

Summer heat in Perth is no joke, and technology has come to play a vital role in efficient water management at home. With clever sensors and timers, smart irrigation systems help you minimise water wastage while keeping your outdoor landscape healthy and full of nutrients. These systems monitor soil moisture levels, weather conditions, and plant needs; to deliver the right amount of water at the right time. They can also be controlled remotely via smartphones or tablets, giving you more convenience and flexibility.

5. Native WA Hardscaping

A serious contender against traditional grass lawns in the new year is the incorporation of local Western Australian rocks, stones, and timbers into landscape designs. This is a growing trend in Perth due to our dry, hot climate and homeowners seeking a connection between their landscapes and the natural surroundings, promoting a sense of harmony. Native hardscaping materials are durable, versatile, cost-effective and a fantastic option for creating pathways, retaining walls, steps, or edging, as seen in the backyard below by our talented Revell Landscaping team.
