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. Subscription to Get Results Gardening : Your year of Get Results Gardening emails (sent Fridays) will commence after payment.

4. Developing the personalised ideas: This is likely to take several weeks, depending on the size and complexity of the project. Every one is given a high degree of individual attention and the exact approach may vary depending on the particulars of the situation. There may be further questions or discussion via email throughout the process, if necessary.

5. Report: A report in a format similar to a simple website (a number of HTML pages and associated images) will emailed to you. This may be done stages over a period. Save all the files to the same folder then view them in a web browser and navigate them like a website.
