PM Fu Manchu, he is in the know, I greatly admire his knowledge. Design is not all there is a need to know soil, plant and climate conditions to have a nicely performing garden After the designers and landscapers have left. I have just seen a beautiful garden 500m from the beach/Kallaroo area planted with magnolias, gardenias. All these plants need acicic soils and though they look great today, I do not think they will last long as the base of the soil in Kallaroo is limestone, very alkaline indeed so it just proves my point....
I am just a crazy middle aged gardener so cannot help you professionally but trust me he knows his stuff and if he is not in the field he might recommend somebody good.
