What is the relevance of Climate
Climate will dictate the types of plants you can successfully grow in your district. 
Living in a Mediterranean climate like Adelaide will not be good for plants from Tropical areas if placed in your landscaped garden.
It is also important to note that there are many variations in the one state, such as the climate in Sydney is significantly different to that at the Blue Mountains or that at Ballina.
By knowing the rainfall, humidity and temperature features of your local area they will enhance your success in gardening and landscaping.
Understanding what grows well in your district will save you money from buying inappropriate plants from local garden centres.
