Mr. Lee, Rawang Country Homes

This is another indoor setup for koi pond which i did for Mr. Lee who is a first timer in kois. The whole structure was raised as to save costs and for it not to affect the core structure of the building itself. Design was more towards Modern Balinese and the two water blades provide ample oxygen for the koi and bacteria.

Ms. Iza, Ara Damansara Pebblewash and Feature Pond

Ms. Iza wanted to redo her whole carpark area. Her existing carpark has been hacked out and she wanted to lay a new layer of pebblewash with tiles to soften up the space. The existing garden area too is quite messy with the plants start to outgrown each other and with the water clogging problem hence the algae problem on some parts of the ground. I've come out with a proposal to redo the whole garden with a water feature and planter box so that everything is systematic and pleasant to the eyes. This is the final result.






It's been a pleasure to get to know Ms. Iza. A very lovely person who is understanding and she knows what she wants and will understand and take into consideration my suggestion which makes it an easy business relationship between both of us. Here i would like to take opportunity to wish her all the best in her and her husband's life. It's been a pleasure knowing you and doing your business.

Guide to Designing a Landscape Space

A nice landscape is a scenery worth a million dollars to the eyes after a day of hard work.
It does need a specialize specialist in order to fully utilize your garden area and enhance it into something practical and presentable. Designing process could be overwhelming as there are many elements that could be incorporate into the landscape area. Here are some points that could be taken into consideration while designing the landscape area.

1) Water Feature.
A running water has a calming effect to the mind and body of an individual. A well designed water feature works wonder on the landscape area regardless of the size of type of the water feature be it a koi pond or stand alone water feature. The running water sound welcomes nearly everyone and makes the outdoor experience more smoothing. There are few types of water feature ie, koi pond, water feature wall, potted water feature, fiber tanks, wooden water feature, bird bath etc.


2) Patio/Decking
Patio or decking is recommended if you plan to utilize the outdoor space to socialize or for relaxing. The reason is that the grass under the tables and chairs will not grow ideally as it doesn't receive the amount of sunlight necessary for it to grow optimally. Patio/decking too brings a more modern clean look compare to the traditional whole grass area landscape. For those who are tight in budget, you could always get a few of concrete slabs and place it strategically as a replacement for the patio/decking. It works wonder too.


3) Understanding the Location of your Garden Area
Ideally, grass should receive around 8 hours of undisrupted sunlight in order for it to grow optimally. It is better to select the grass and location for it to grow rather than forcing it to grow as you could waste your initial spending. Space planing is important for landscape too. Places that receive less to no sunlight could be replaced with pebbles or other hardscape and landscape product. Understanding the water flow of the landscape is too important as too many water clogging in your soil area basically ruins everything. It's better to understand and to settle the problem first than to regret it later.

  

4) Add ons
Add ons usually brings out the landscape area to a whole new level. Accessories like Gazebo, Pergola, Swings are a few items that could be costly, but works wonder on the overall look. Feature pot that could be used as a stand alone item or as potted plants could be use to break up barriers in the landscape area. Items like stepping stones / concrete slabs are used as a walkway instead of walking on the grass as it might injured the grass itself. Pebbles and rocks brings a more modern look to the landscape design. Railway wood adds an element of nature to it.

5) Maintenance
Be sure of how often you would like to maintain your garden. Are you available daily,weekly,monthly or are you looking to engage outsider or specialist to do your maintenance for a fees. Different plants and grass have different type of maintenance. For example, pearl grass doesn't need to be trim therefore it is considered low maintenance grass. But the downside is that it attracts ants. Philippine grass are nicer and finer but it does need to be maintain at least once a month. Do note that if the grass are left unattended too long, the lower part of the grass will dry off as it loses out on the sunlight required for it to stay healthy. There are few types of plants that require less maintenance too. Do keep in mind that a well done landscape will not remain a well done landscape unless it is maintain regularly.

Here at La Revee Landscape & Florist, we aim to provide the necessary specialty and design in order to achieve the ideal landscape at an affordable cost . Everyone deserve to have a personalize landscape at their retreat and we are here to help.

Yvonne, Seksyen 11, Kota Damansara

There's actually an existing feature pond done by the contractor of the renovation engaged by Yvonne but as the contractor has no background on building it, there was alot of problems that surfaced after completion i.e water leakage, unbalance water blade feature etc. Yvonne finally engaged me to redo the whole structure and this is the final result.

Existing Water Feature. Picture has been pixelated as to protect the integrity of the contactor. This was the existing design of the pond that was up for around 1 week.
