Apace Natural Design natural-design

Apace Natural Design is a professional Landscape Architecture service offering a complete landscape design and implementation service for landscaping works.

Based at the Apace headquarters in North Fremantle, the service emphasises use of local plants for the Perth Metropolitan Region. We take an ecologically sound approach with water conservation and low chemical use. The service applies to public recreation areas, landscaping in natural areas, wetland design and planting, schools, factories and residential landscaping. We encourage the integration of local native plants into existing landscaping schemes.

We offer solutions for

  • Home gardens needing better planned spaces, less lawn and creative use of native species. Government agencies, Schools and Councils who need to rethink planning of public parks, subdivision plantings, or school gardens. We can hold workshops to stimulate input into these plans from relevant communities to get the best design solutions possible.
  • Landowners and Government agencies responsible for the restoration, revegetation and maintenance of bushland or wetland areas. We can offer flora surveys, management plans and implementation programs to satisfy all aspects of care or conditions of approval.
  • New developments in factories, parks, highways or any other project that has a component of planting
