    Garden design and plant choice 

    Hi Charlie. I have a pseudo Queenslander on acerage in Jimboomba Qld. We can be very dry with some frost in winter. I have a rectangular back yard which is approx 400sqm with a trampoline, cubby house and clothes line. There are two beautiful ghost gums on one side of the yard next to the horse paddock. I have no idea how to design the garden and I can't find a garden designer in our area. I love palms, hibiscus, tropical plants and shrubs. Where do I start? What plants should I choose. Thank you for your help. I greatly appreciate it
