About The Rural Landscaping Company

Who We Are

We are the Rural Landscaping Company from Jarrahdale on the Darling Ranges of Perth, Western Australia. We live on the rural fringe and work with clients on acreage, lifestyle and equestrian properties. We have been designing and constructing outdoor spaces for the past five years specialising in rustic and country landscapes.

How We Operate

We offer comprehensive landscape design and construction services providing beginning-to-end project design, material selections, and contractor selection and management specific to each client.

Every client is different; some seek a full-scale design, some seasonal maintenance or water management, but almost all are chasing simple advice on a staged priority-based approach to their landscape ideas. It is common that we roll out the landscape plan in intervals, returning to commence the next stage as the budget and season allows.

It is important to us that we understand your needs thoroughly, how you want each element of your design to perform and ultimately how you would like to live in your new landscape. For this reason we are happy to spend the time to listen to you with a free initial consultation.

Points of Difference

The Rural Landscaping Company are unique and there are very few that do what we do. A few things that separate us from the others:

  • We work with the land not against it. – It is our aim to leave a light footprint on the planet and so we enhance what is already there, minimise damage to the natural environment, and don’t remove anything unnecessarily. This minimum disturbance concept is discussed during the planning phase and all decisions are made in collaboration with our clients.

  • We build out of recycled products – We love to recycle, so our bitumen driveways, road base, hardstands, tracks, mulches, and landscaping materials are mostly recycled. We get a kick out of re-using and re-purposing materials and making use of what the client already has to make a feature or bed the design into the natural landscape.

  • We make budgets stretch further on larger properties. – Many clients ask us to stage the work to suit their budget, so we prioritise the tasks and go back at a later stage to complete the next stage of the project. Often the landscape concept is not completed in one project, but we deliver at a pace that will suit your budget requirements. Using recycled products can also help in regards to your budget!

  • We work to scale – We understand that landscaping on acreage, lifestyle, and equestrian properties is an exercise in scale as zones and installations are generally larger, but so are the open spaces between them. The space between zones, buildings, open spaces and features needs to be proportionate to the rural surroundings.

  • We understand the importance of water management – We always consider how the landscape will perform during wet weather conditions and build the drainage solutions into the landscape design before we begin.

  • We solve problems and come up with creative solutions – We enjoy solving problems, coming up with workable solutions for difficult areas for our clients. We work in the Perth Hills so we know a fair bit about managing water, working with clay, rock, and sandy soils.

  • We believe function drives design. – We will spend a lot of time asking questions to understand how you use your land and what new amenities you want. It is true your landscapes and hardscapes should look amazing but how they perform and their functionality comes first.

Our Goal

Here at the Rural Landscaping Company we don’t compromise on quality materials, workmanship or construction methods. Our aim is to form lifelong relationships in our local community and we achieve that by selecting the most suitable materials and employing methods that will ensure the landscape can be used and enjoyed for a long time. We hope to provide the long term enjoyment of a quality well-built landscape that will last longer than the short term buzz of a cheap one.


We want to help you realise your vision. Landscaping is very personal and we will work closely with you from beginning to end to help you achieve your dream. By the end of the project we will know you very well and will generally develop a great first name working relationship that continues into the future.

Wandi Entry

Staged project – phase 1: gates and fencing

Client had procured vintage wrought iron gates made using traditional joinery methods, so we came up with a design that would complement and maximise the effect of the statement gates for a modern industrial entry with wow factor. Solid Jarrah railway sleepers were installed upright/vertical and spaced/shaped to create a welcoming curve on custom steel brackets. For the front of the property line we transitioned to traditional split Jarrah post-and-rail fencing with contrasting black chain link mesh, and installed a rural gate for secondary emergency/fire break access

Darling Downs Landscaping

Stage 2 Landscaping – reticulated garden beds with various levels and geometric pattern for dynamic and contemporary garden. Designed to make the most of long narrow spaces and for intended use of cultivating vegetables and fruit trees. Various fruit saplings planted, and gardens mulched, including Corten Steel edged beds down the length of the perimeter.

Easy to maintain gardens with the right mix of visual engagement and practicality, with blue metal walkways throughout for good drainage.

Darling Downs Entry

This project was staged with these initial works to include the contemporary statement entry complete with personalised metal garden/wall art, automated gates, red asphalt/hot mix driveway and custom coloured flush, mount concrete curbing.

We then transitioned to a blue metal walkway/path to the front door, and installed a raised limestone garden bed. Further, rural post-and-rail fencing was installed along the property edge, as well as mulched garden beds with Corten Steel edging for a sharp finish. A compacted gravel hardstand and parking area was laid at a secondary entrance point with a farm-style gate, allowing access to the shed.

Korribinjal Reserve, Jarrahdale

Feature outdoor entertaining space overlooking the Korribinjal Reserve, designed and created to include compacted gravel garden paths, stairs with timber sleepers, and an eye-catching fire pit utilising foraged rocks from on the property for a cost saving alternative that beds the setting into the natural landscape. Also installed were some blue steel garden paths lined with raised garden beds constructed from recycled crates, and some mulched garden beds

Stake Hill Landscaping – Stage 2

Stage 2 included additional works to both adjoining areas and new, with works that covered recycled bitumen driveway and hardstand to existing shed pad, and that required blending against finishes from stage 1; raised garden beds made of limestone blocks and Corten Steel, surrounded by compacted crushed limestone walkways and garden paths, with feature Jarrah railway sleepers; shed pads and bedding made with blue steel and edged by limestone retaining walls and stairs; post and wire fencing and farm gate installation along front property line; and finishes such as reticulation and organic soils

North Dandalup Yard

This rural property was in need of a front yard makeover, and all hardscaping was planned to meet existing structures, paths and lawns with neat and exacting finishes. Red Ferricrete / compacted gravel was installed for the driveway, turning circle and parking hardstand, which was shaped to compliment existing features and improve functionality. Recycled stone was laid for additional gardens with the inclusion of feature rocks repurposed from the local area. Existing gardens were re-shaped and laid with fresh eco mulches.

Ravenswood Entry

This project involved the installation of repurposed railway sleepers in a vertical configuration to frame the entry for dynamic impact. This entry statement was further complimented by a red Ferricrete / compacted gravel rural driveway with turning circle and parking hardstand. Feature rock was repurposed and utilised in the richly mulched and shaped gardens.

Wattle Grove Driveway

With a more contemporary structure on this rural landscape, the project called for some dynamic shapes and colours that would tie the building into its natural setting, For this reason a red recycled bitumen driveway was selected, as well as for durability and functionality, with contrasting but complimentary parking hardstands and overtaking areas in red compacted gravel. This more modern aesthetic paired well with the existing features of the landscape, introducing organic curves and shapes against the hard lines of the existing home. Gardens and edges were freshly mulched.
