From as early as he can remember, Managing Director Cullen Long took a keen interest in outdoor creativity. Providing unpaid labour at the age of four assisting his parents to build dry-stone walls, plant trees and install a concrete shed slab with the customary hand print at their new home. From there his passion grew.
Cullen began his paid career in 2002 while completing horticulture studies, in the process being awarded WA Apprentice of the Year. After five years spent crafting his knowledge of concrete pools and landscaping, Cullen realised there was a void in the industry for multifaceted companies who provided a “one-stop-shop” approach for integrated pool and landscape designs. An idea was born with Principal Pools + Landscapes being formed in 2007.
Specialising in the residential pool and landscape sector, Cullen and his team pride themselves on creating individual and timeless designs which reflect the client’s brief and complement the surrounding landscape and architecture. Cullen prefers to implement a “hands on” approach- personally conducting site consultations with clients (free of charge in metro area), carefully listening to their ideas and ensuring no part of their brief is lost in translation. The entire exterior of your home is considered during the 2D and 3D design process, enabling a seamless design and material palette which in turn ensures maximum functionality and appeal.
