After reading Tina's post about making a light box for her landscape designs and seeing what a plan looks like, the idea popped into my head to do it myself ! Thanks Tina.
No, I'm not a landscape designer but did a "plan" of what is ALREADY in the yard.
Most of my garden beds are done but realized this year I didn't know where the heck everything was planted in my shade beds. And now there's a new sun bed (oddly shaped)which was a gift from Hubby last year with only certain plants labeled (go figure),so I just had to wait till' they bloomed to figure 'em out !
Of course, knowing myself, this is all subject to change. If only I knew then what I know now my placement and selections would have been different. Regardless, my side of the yard looks pretty darn good, IMHO.
This diagram outlining what's growing took about 2 weeks to do and can be changed if needed.
It's not a professional design but the information is helpful for this gardener.
By the way... it's been in the low 90's/33 c for a week now, so working outside has been nearly out of the question.
