Get Results Gardening is a weekly email mini-magazine with an SE Qld focus.

Reliable plants, fundamentals simply explained, achievable ideas, inspiration and motivation for a beautiful garden that compliments your house and makes your whole property more enjoyable to live in.

What do you get?

Tailored to your own current garden situation, experience level, tastes, lifestyle and location, you'll get ideas for your garden via an email-based service.

Perhaps you're a beginner gardener and would like some ideas as you start developing the garden yourself. Or, perhaps you're looking for some concepts to take to a landscaper or gardening professional for further development. If you're not sure, simply get in touch and ask for a free, no-obligation assessment.

There'll be an emphasis on plant selection and ways to keep costs down (including working with what you already have). This service is intended as a cheap and flexible alternative to a garden design and will improve your gardening knowledge in the process.

After discussion and analysis of your particular situation and needs (see below), you'll typically receive an report in electronic form that you can view like a website on your computer.

The paid report will typically contain (depending on the particulars of the project concerned):
 • Descriptive text
 • Diagrams and illustrations
 • Extra information about particular plants or other items
 • Links to other useful resources on the internet as appropriate

At present, this service is intended primarily for residents of Queensland. Residents of other Australian states may also take advantage of this opportunity, but it may not be possible to provide quite as much locally-specific information.

What's the process?

1. Email an enquiry: Include your location, some photographs from various angles, and a brief description of your current garden. Any other information you can give at this stage is always helpful, such as desired style (e.g. tropical, cottage, native, contemporary) or other issues (e.g. need for privacy). This will help determine the nature of your situation and whether this service is suitable for you.

2. Preliminary assessment and notes: If suitable, you'll receive some initial thoughts and ideas about your garden within a few days, at no cost or obligation. This should give you a general impression of the way in which the project is likely to be developed, or highlight issues for further discussion, and help you decide whether you want to proceed with the paid service.

3. Payment: If you choose to proceed, you'll be asked for payment in advance. You can pay by direct bank deposit or by cheque. Details will be supplied on the tax invoice. (Prices include GST. ABN 38 518 961 623. Australia only. Please see other terms and conditions below.)

4. Developing the ideas: Each project is given a high degree of individual attention and the exact approach may vary depending on the particulars of your situation. There may be further questions or discussion via email throughout the process, if necessary.

5. Final report: The process will conclude with a report in HTML (website) format emailed to you. It's likely to take several weeks in total, depending on the size and complexity of the project.
