- Find the right spot in your landscape for this garden’s light and soil requirements.
- Measure out the area needed in your yard – see reverse for square footage.
- Using your garden map, measure enough space for each plant, and lay out your plants. Each circle represents a mature perennial plant – resist the urge to plant young plants too close together!
- Give your garden at least 12” of additional space on the front and sides.
Each Pre-Planned Garden comes with a Garden Map that will provide you with a layout for the optimal planting arrangement. If you need to make adjustments for your unique garden space, that's not a problem! Generally, the best strategy for designing a garden is to plant your tallest plants in the back, and transition to lower plants in the middle, and lowest plants and groundcover in the front. That way, you’ll be able to see all of your plants in bloom.
