I'm looking for an easy garden design software program (free or at
least reasonably priced would be great!) and am wondering if anyone
here has any to suggest. I like to have a plan for my vegetable
garden before planting and am getting tired of doing it by hand every
I tried a few applications and keep going back to a sheet of paper and
pencil. I have a drafting table and all the tools and can produce a
drawing much faster, more flexibility, and lower cost than any
I have had similar experiences. I bought Growit which was poor. I tried
various drawing packages without joy. Unless you are doing this all the
time the cost of learning the package becomes excessive.
Try paper with transparent overlays and make it big enough that the details
don't get too fiddly when scaled down. Your basic land layout of things
that cannot be changed (land boundaries, house etc) goes on the background
and then you do different layers for different solutions or for different
stages of development or activities. This way you don't have to keep
re-drawing common elements and you can quickly compare two solutions.
