Interior and landscape designer Ashley Peverett says his job is to help his clients create entirely unique spaces.
"I give people what they are not going to find in every magazine," he said.
"My aim is always to produce something that perfectly suits the individual; there is no point replicating something that someone else has done before."
The owner of this Lathlain property purchased the house because they fell in love with the interior - but the exterior was lifeless and in desperate need of a makeover.
"Basically it was a bit like a prison yard," he said. "It is a U-shaped two-storey house on a rear lot and so the people who originally built it put a grey concrete slab in there and a freestanding hot tub and that was it. There were no plants."
Mr Peverett said the owner wanted a pool and a barbecue and an area that was inviting and suitable for entertaining. "Essentially, other than that, I was given a very open brief," he said.
"I presented a 3-D model to them of the proposed design and they approved it and left everything up to me, including choosing the furniture and the cushions and the barbecue."
Mr Peverett said the hot tub was removed and a pool with a waterfall feature was installed. The waterfall was a key focal point, and he chose timber-look tiles to clad the face of it.
"I really wanted to use a warm palette and, to do that, I used a lot of texture and different combinations of wood and stone," he said. "I used a lot of different timbers, including jarrah, with the idea of creating a warm and comfortable space."
Mr Peverett said one of the space's most important features was the use of plenty of lighting, which helped to create ambience in the evening.
The laser-cut panels were a spectacular but also functional part of the garden, providing a screen and creating a neat entry to the property."I wanted to provide privacy from the neighbours and also clearly separate the entry walkway from the rest of the space," he said.
