Luma Landscapes


This project in Hawthorn utilised a blend of both traditional and contemporary landscape design principles to transform the outdoor space into a visually appealing and functional oasis. The addition of a steel pergola seamlessly connected the indoor and outdoor areas, while the extending awning enhanced comfort and usability in the garden.


Traditional and Symmetric Front Garden

To align with the style of the house, the front garden was designed with a traditional and symmetric layout. This approach created a sense of elegance and continuity, establishing a visual connection between the house and its surroundings. Carefully selected plants and landscaping elements were incorporated to enhance the traditional aesthetic while maintaining a cohesive design.

Minimalist Rear Garden

In contrast to the front garden, the design philosophy of the rear garden embraced minimalism. Deliberately simplifying the space, the design aimed to create an open and expansive area that fostered a seamless flow between the interior and exterior spaces. By minimising clutter and emphasising clean lines, we are able to achieve a visually captivating, contemporary landscape design.

Steel Pergola

A steel pergola was introduced to the garden to serve as a connecting element between the indoor and outdoor areas. This addition not only brought the garden closer to the house but also provided a designated spot for relaxation and contemplation. The steel material added a modern touch to the design, creating a harmonious blend of contemporary and traditional elements.


To enhance the functionality of the steel pergola, an extending awning was incorporated. This feature provided shade and protection from the elements, making the outdoor area usable even during hot or rainy weather. The awning served as an extension of the pergola, ensuring comfort and allowing for enjoyable outdoor experiences throughout the day.
