Free Online Square Foot Gardening Tool
Gardener's Supply Company has a free online garden planning tool on their website. It allows you to create and customize garden plans. You can set the dimensions of your garden bed, drag and drop herbs, vegetables and fruits into each square foot. The program even recommends how many of each herb, vegetable or fruit to plant in a square foot. Planting care instructions for each plant you select are displayed below your garden layout. You can name your garden plan, save it, print it or even email it. You can also create several garden layouts, and then load them to the site map tool to arrange the garden beds in your overall space. For those of you who do not want to design your own garden layouts, their website also offers a section of free pre-planned garden layouts. This is a neat tool and worth checking out!
