What do you want your yard to look like?
Next in the planning process you can take the current photos of the yard, the potential new garden plans, and any new landscaping or structures you were thinking about and put your ideas on paper. Only make plans for what you can accomplish this year. And a good time frame to be finished is Father’s Day in mid-June. That way you always leave yourself time in the season to sit back and enjoy your hard work and harvest!
Use this printable grid paper to plan various sections of your yard or garden. My favorite Garden is my Children’s Garden. Don’t spend a lot of time on the drawing, but you might want to take just a couple of measurements the first year so you know how many square feet you have available for each plant. As years go by you will find that you are faster and have fewer changes to make.
