With carefully selected plants and proper irrigation they take care of themselves. The only thing that may need to be done is the odd trimming of dead leaves or fertilising. Do you know what garden theme you like? Modern, Tropical, Cottage, etc... Also, does your garden space get plenty of sun or is it shaded most of the day?

First thing to look at is the layout of the garden and unsure you get the structure/pathways/hard landscaping areas right, then start to explore the planting. Have a look over your neighbours gardens to get an idea of what grows well in the area. Correct plant selection for your area will save you plenty of time/money/anguish.

I always refer to the plants your local council plant around roundabouts, nature strips, etc.
There isn't anyone caring for them apart from some mulch every few months.
Take a picture on your phone, and maybe a very small cutting and show the local nursery.
