Creating Your Supreme Outdoor Space

Spending quality time in your backyard is one of life’s little pleasures. If you want to transform your outdoor space, now is a good time to get started. With the right advice and the best products, your backyard can transform into its own sanctuary.

Where to Start

A supreme outdoor space will add life to any backyard, no matter how much space you have. Even if you are on a budget, you don’t have to spend a lot of money shading for your outdoor area.

Here are some of the best ideas to reinvigorate your backyard:


Perth is renowned for its searing heat, which can often hang around until the middle of autumn. Your home’s exterior feels the full force of the sun and it can make for uncomfortable conditions. The right shade can make your home look and feel much cooler in the warmer months and it can also protect you from the rain in the winter.

As a leading shade specialist, we understand the importance of keeping your home cool in summer. Supreme Shades has an array of styles and colours to suit any home. In fact, our team will work with you to customise the perfect shade for your home!


Installing a quality shade is only the beginning when it comes to creating the perfect outdoor living area. Accessories such as hanger pots, fairy lights and mesh cloth can add personality to your new shade. They are relatively inexpensive to put on and they can have a big impact on your outdoor space.

Choose accessories that will complement both your home’s exterior and the colour of your shade. Play with light and dark colours as well as hues on the opposite end of the colour spectrum, such as:

  • Green and red
  • Blue and Yellow
  • Purple and orange


No garden would be complete without plants. There are many varieties of plants that thrive in shaded areas. Buffalo grass, for instance, only requires a few hours of sunlight a day to grow. If you want to add some greenery to your garden, plants are the perfect companion. Other plants that thrive in the shade include:

  • Mexican bush sage
  • Chinese jasmine star
  • White trillium
  • Big root geranium

Plants that love shade not only look good, they will save you on your water bills. If you aren’t sure about the best plants to choose, always speak to your local nursery. They’ll also give you a guide on how to best look after your new plants.
