The garden is one of the best places where you can keep in direct contact with nature, inhale the oxygen, and relax. It has a stress relieving effect, and has many other uses too. For example you can grow vegetables in order to eat your own healthy organic food, or you can pick fresh flowers and put them in a vase to add some color to your interior design. If you have pets, the garden is the perfect place for them to spend time, run around, and possibly even feed themselves.
So if you have a new garden, or a garden that hasn’t been worked on for a long time, you should start planning and designing it. The most easy and inexpensive way to do that would be using garden planning software.
Most garden planning programs include an easy to use interface that helps you plan and visualize your design ideas. Terrain modeling tools will help you create natural slopes, and grades for your garden. These programs also include information on gardening, so you can learn a lot about sun exposure, growth zones, and types of plants. Topographical options like fencing, gates, ground fill, edging, retaining walls and pathways will help you get a realistic and detailed idea. You can also add custom outdoor features like ponds, waterfalls, outdoor grills, greenhouse, and garden furniture.
A plant organizer feature will help you in cataloging your favorite plants. You can enter the plant’s name, the description, its attributes, maintenance notes and more, to check in the following years. A garden idea organizer feature will help you to store information about various garden solutions, and you can also enter notes about garden design or common gardening problems. Some garden planning software even include a “garden work organizer”, which will help you plan and execute new gardening projects, as well as maintenance tasks.
