East Melbourne

In the heart of East Melbourne, this garden introduces a more layered style of planting that sits seamlessly with the historic residence it surrounds. Drawing inspiration from the classic elegance of the architecture, the garden features an arrangement of plants that adds depth and sophistication. Multilayered beds showcase a diverse palette of textures, colours, and heights, creating a dynamic visual experience. Ornamental grasses gracefully intermingle with perennial blooms, while carefully selected shrubs and trees contribute to the garden’s lush, textured atmosphere. This layered approach not only enhances the aesthetic appeal but also establishes a sense of depth and complexity, inviting residents and visitors to explore the garden’s intricate tapestry of flora. It’s a garden that not only pays homage to the past but also embraces a modern, layered approach to planting for a truly timeless outdoor experience in the heart of East Melbourne.


Layered Planting

In the art of garden design, the magic often lies in the layering.  Layered plants, trees, and flowers are the heart of any good garden, adding depth, texture, and dimension to outdoor spaces. We carefully curate a harmonious blend of colours, heights, and shapes, ensuring that your garden evolves with the seasons, offering a kaleidoscope of beauty throughout the year. From the anchor of sturdy trees to the delicate grace of vibrant flowers at ground level, each layer contributes to a captivating symphony of life.


Water features in a garden have a transformative effect, introducing a serene ambience that elevates the entire landscape. The gentle ripple of a fountain or the stillness of a reflective pond can evoke a sense of tranquillity, providing a soothing backdrop to the vibrant tapestry of flora. The rhythmic flow of water instils a calming cadence, creating a peaceful retreat where one can escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. The sight and sound of water have a meditative quality, inviting contemplation and encouraging a connection with nature.

Bluestone Paving

Bluestone, with its timeless qualities, is a versatile and elegant choice for enhancing the aesthetic appeal of various garden styles. Whether incorporated into a formal, structured garden or used to create a more casual, naturalistic setting, bluestone seamlessly adapts to different design elements. Its cool, blue-gray hue imparts a sense of sophistication, complementing both modern and traditional landscapes. As a paving material, bluestone provides a smooth, durable surface that withstands the test of time while exuding an understated charm. Its ability to work with different plantings and architectural features makes it a favorite among the Luma Landscapes team.
