Reflection of lifestyle
AS Malaysians enjoy more affluence, they begin to look for the finer things in life. In many cases, this means going back to nature.
A very good example of bringing nature closer to home is landscaping, where a good design can give homeowners the feeling of being in a tropical resort holiday setting, yet with the feeling of being at home.
Urban Lifestyle Landscape’s Edwin Kumar has more than 30 years’ experience in designing gardens. He understands that many homeowners are able and willing to spend money on landscaping nowadays because it helps them enjoy their abode better – whether it is a landed property or a condominium balcony.
“Many of our clients are looking for a garden that says something about their lifestyle. These open spaces are designed to help them relax at home. A landscaped garden should reflect the owner’s personality and we try to make the design conform to this rule.
“If we see that the client is someone who prefers privacy, we may design a landscape that will help him relax and hang out at home. It may only have a small area for entertaining guests. However, if the homeowner is a vibrant socialite, then we will have to consider his needs of holding regular parties.
“The landscaping has to fit those needs and make room for a lot of space for people,” Edwin explains.
Garden themes can range from tropical, Zen and modern contemporary to minimalist.
Urban Lifestyle Landscape offers services that encompass both hardscape and softscape.
Hardscapes include pergolas, gazebos, decking, lighting, pools, koi ponds, garden furniture and woodwork, while softscape are the plants and turf.
