getting started on the garden

We decided to start thinking about the garden before the house, mainly because trees take so much longer to grow. Also, because of that, we don't have time to make mistakes, planting the wrong kind of tree or in the wrong position. So, even though its still going to be very much our own garden, we decided to get expert help in the planning. After some searching online we found Prue from http://www.pruemetcalfegardens.com.au. She's based in Melbourne but has worked in Germany and the UK so is familiar with the kind of gardening styles that I've learned about here. Also, among other things, she specialises in dry-tolerant English style gardens.
