Garden Design Planner

5 Better Homes and Gardens’ Plan-A-Garden BHG.com’s Plan-A-Garden. Plan-A-Garden is easy to use because it supports drag and drop. Plus, all the objects you add to the garden are 3D to make it look more realistic than a simple bird's eye view like some of these planners support.To help you build your garden, the planner walks you through a wizard. First, just select a background scene from the pre-made templates, like the sidewalk one you see to the left. Then, you can drag fences, benches, and arbors into the scene to customize the look. Finally, you get to brush a surface onto your garden, such as a lawn, brick path, stones, tiles, or gravel.Finally, you of course, are able to include all sorts of plants to the garden. There are tons of trees, vines, shrubs, bulbs and more that are simple to add via drag and drop. These objects can be filtered by size and you're allowed to search through them to help find the ones you want.Your garden can be saved online so you never lose your progress. When completely finished, you're able to print off the image of the garden you've made. Unlike similar online garden planners, you don't get a list of the plants and objects you've included, so Plan-A-Garden is more for a visual representation of your garden than an actual supplies list.Something else I don't much like about Better Homes and Gardens' Plan-A-Garden when compared to the other online garden planners from this list is that it's not as easy to add objects and plants to the garden. You only get one view to see the garden from, so moving objects around on the screen becomes a bit limited.Note: GardenPuzzle is another free garden planner that's very similar to Plan-A-Garden. More

7 Vegetable Planner Vegetable Planner. Vegetable Planner is extremely simple to use and functions just like the one from Gardeners.com.Just click the arrows to scroll through the different plants, where you can find garlic, lettuce, onions, peppers, spinach, pumpkins, potatoes, rosemary, tomatoes, turnips, and more.While this garden planner is very easy to use and may work great for what you're after so you don't have to draw out the plan yourself, there is one thing I found very limiting about it.Printing your garden plan off doesn't include anything but the image of the garden you've built. There is no useful planting information or measurements included like there are with the planner from Gardeners.com. This means there isn't much useful information from a printout except the image of the garden. More
