There is beauty in simplicity.

Antoine de Saint-Exupery

BLAC. designs timeless, elegant, foliage gardens dominant with architectural lines that are bursting with complimentary contrasting textures. Minimalism is fundamental to the design philosophy at BLAC. We focus upon the considered use of space, form, detail of material, scale and human interaction. With an understanding of these elements we then consider how to best create relationships between these qualities to resolve your outdoor space.

We also consider the essence of invisible qualities such as light and wind, and study the effects that these elements will have upon your space, placing immense value in the dynamic theatrics of shadows and movement. In doing so, it allows us to select the most essential materials to form relationships between architecture, landscape and human interaction.



Multi-award winning Garden and Exterior Designer, Peta Donaldson designs gardens bursting with texture, complimentary contrasts and layers of inspiring green. Peta’s priorities lie in the form, function and aesthetic of a garden. “The ultimate consideration is designing an exterior space with purpose that will encourage a life outside.”

Favouring striking combinations of textured evergreen foliage, Peta introduces colour and seasonal variation in the garden through the strategic introduction and placement of floral, deciduous trees and climbers.

Peta’s gardens are fundamentally strong in form, texture and scale, with a focus on the balance between strong architectural lines, meticulous planting and elegant styling. Each design is carefully and professionally managed, respecting the architecture of your home, creating a seamless relationship between both the interior and exterior.

A background in landscape design, horticulture, marketing and account management has allowed Peta to develop a professional approach to garden design and construction.
