Award winning innovative landscape design Perth

At Cultivart Landscape Design we are passionate about creating innovative, beautiful outdoor spaces. Owner/designer Janine Mendel just loves creating gardens and in her 35 year career, she has designed more than 2000 of them right here in Perth. Janine has also written two books about design and been featured in several others, so she is definitely your go to person if you want a brilliant outdoor space.

From small cutting edge courtyards to large formal estates, Janine believes every garden should reflect the character and lifestyle of its owners.

‘No garden is too small to be amazing’

‘Every garden is unique and there is no one design that fits all’

‘Great gardens start with great designs’

And great design is more than just good styling. At Cultivart we understand that the essence of great design is also about the practicalities of daily living. A garden should be functional as well as beautiful.

We know that water is precious, we understand what plants thrive in our local environment and we know all about your soil. We really are passionate about design and we want to create an awesome garden for you.

About designing your garden

Whether you are building from scratch, renovating or you just want someone to make sense of your own ideas, Janine can help you. For the best results, don’t leave it until you are about to move in. Janine likes to consider the whole of the site as the canvas for design and she can design your swimming pool, your alfresco area and even give you advice on floor levels, door openings and selections and almost anything to do with your build that will affect your enjoyment of the garden.

‘My philosophy is that your house should look like ‘it’ has been planted in the garden’

‘Have Plants! They are good for everything including your own well being.”
