Western Australia based Brady Skevington has always loved the outdoors. He runs a medium sized Perth based landscaping firm, Boutique Timeless Landscaping (BTL), offering medium to high end landscaping solutions all over the city. The firm has been running now for six years, and has three staff.
Brady has been lucky to work on some pretty incredible homes over the years, and he is passionate about greening the city. "Urban gardening is an incredible industry to attack head on," he says. "Every day we are surrounded by concrete, bitumen and paving - how we shade, brighten and green up those spaces is a challenge that we thrive on."
Each build is different, with specific challenges, risks and rewards. A good example is a project Brady worked on with Kelsie Davies from KDLA, who designed a timeless poolside build in Mount Claremont. Lawn and sandpit areas provided various child friendly spaces, whilst NewTech wood cladding, slat/ glass pool fencing, and exotic Garonne stone, incorporated a modern feel and finishes around the pool and entertaining area, importantly all adorned with greenery. "With the contrast of the New Tech wood castellation cladding we were able to create a pretty incredible result using 3 Mini Wall planters," notes Brady. "By using a self watering product, made to withstand Perth's incredible temperatures, Glowpear was a no brainer for this application." The result at Mount Claremont is nothing short of incredible!
Brady and BTL work closely with a bunch of landscape designers and architects, and we have to say we can't wait to see the new projects he comes up with in the future, spreading the urban jungle!
