Looking sharp! A contemporary coastal garden compliments the laid-back lifestyle the design of this stunning Cottesloe home evokes. From the cactus garden to the lush backyard, the outdoor spaces are a harmonious blend of textures and finishes that epitomise low-key beachside living. 

The front planting pallet plays with the different architectural forms of the various arid species contrasted with the soft native planting. The natural stone paving is a work of art in itself, creating an intriguing and inviting surface at the entry to the home. 

At the rear of the property, an existing pool has been modernised by the strategic use of oversized, uniform tiles and a unique waterproofing system creates a seamless finish. One of the most important features of the backyard is a much-loved underground trampoline that illuminates with feature lighting from below, while the custom-built concrete BBQ and rare pachypodiums and cycas are equally eye-catching.  A family home first-and-foremost, the outdoor room greatly increases the usability of the garden, creating a space to lounge, or share a meal in comfort while experiencing full views of the kids playing in the pool or garden. 


We are so happy with our new garden from ALA. From design to implementation – their professionalism is first class.

Their knowledge and attention to detail is incredible – Jon is an absolute perfectionist and his energy and enthusiasm about plants and design is infectious. We have only had our garden completed for a couple of weeks, but our friends, guests & neighbours have commented on an amazing job, and the creative use of our outdoor space.

ALA’s garden design has completely rejuvenated our home! Thank you to the team at Align Landscape Architecture – the best!
