Garden Advice Service
This is a one hour personalised onsite service that will assist you with plant selection for a garden area or plant care in your garden. We take a look at your problem area and discuss your requirements. I will leave you with a handwritten list of plant species or information on plant care.
Garden advice, nutrition and what to plant where
During the one hour visit to your garden we work together to find out what you want to achieve for your garden area. I offer ideas on plants that will suit the garden area we have discussed. After the visit, I return to my work desk to compile a list of plants will suit the garden area we have discussed and I will provide brief information on plant growth and care. No garden plan is provided with this service.
Garden Design Service
During the design process, I work closely with you to achieve a functional outdoor space that reflects your personal style.
This service includes a one hour on-site visit to assess all aspects of your garden area, discuss your ideas and design options. A comprehensive soil test is recommended.
After my garden visit, I will send you a Design Fee Proposal that outlines all we have discussed.
Following the engagement of Focus On Gardens, I will commence the drawing up of a Concept plan. This will be presented to you. It is at this stage, changes are made.
Your Planting Plan and accompanying information are completed and handed to you.
A comprehensive Soil test is beneficial as it indicates what exactly is going on in your garden. Soil is sent away for lab testing. Leaf testing is also available. Look at MY SHOP for further information on these services.
There may be times when you will require some advice regarding nutrition, plants and/or soil. I will be happy to revisit your garden and this will be on an hourly basis.
Please contact me for pricing for the above services.

Our garden is coming along nicely especially after all the rain we have received over the past couple of weeks. Garry has been in Darwin since July and was amazed how much things have grown!
We would like to thank you for the design work you completed for our new garden. We really appreciated the time you spent with us working out and listening to everything we had in mind and your professional service.
The garden looks great now it is all planted and we can look forward to the ‘fruits of our labour’ both yours and ours and can’t wait until after this summer and wet season to see everything really take off! Thanks for recommending the Humus – it was very economical and easy to use and seems very nutritious for the plants.
It was helpful to have your guidance with the type of plants we planned to use and where they could be suitably planted. The drawings you supplied were great thanks.
Robyn and Garry McLeod.
