     "Sometimes customers arrive with pictures of the area, either new or old, surrounding their house or pool. Often these areas seem like impossible places in which to create something lush, green and colourful. I enjoy these challenges and have had some years of experience solving them at Palms for Brisbane. Outside of family and work commitments, I enjoy maintaining my own tropical garden at home"
