Outdoor Pergola & Timber Deck Project - Gooseberry Hill | WATD

Geoff & Libby


Geoff and Libby had a good sized courtyard that needed a makeover. However, they wanted to include the vegetable garden, and provide a structure for the much loved wisteria. Their artistic vision for the makeover meant that proportions, height and materials used in the new outdoor installations needed to be spot on. The also wanted long life materials and construction methods that would withstand the 40 degree weather variation that the Perth area experiences.


WA Timber Decking Professionals worked with the owner’s plans and provided section models of the construction materials detailing how they would be mounted and joined.

Once approved the team then worked with the plans to create exactly the right proportions and ‘feel’ that the owner’s wanted. An exceptionally sturdy sub-frame was created for the decking, and jarrah timber chosen for its superior weather endurance ability. The wisteria now provided shade over the decking in summer while leaving the sun to pour in during winter.

With the vegetables happily growing and the wisteria blooming, Geoff and Libby commented that they were thoroughly enjoying using the beautiful outdoor area all year round.
