Garden Planning Software

Post by Valerie Jachimowic » Tue, 02 Jul 1996 04:00:00



I am thinking about starting a perennial garden. I would like to be able
to plant a smallish section each year. Some goals are to eventually have
something that is low maintenance (little weeding) that will provide a
little color all year long. I am sure that I can find lots of flowers
that will work well, but I am finding it difficult to plan what should go
where, as there are just too many variables for me to keep in mind.

Does anyone have any experience with flower Garden planning software? I
am a Macintosh user.

TIA,

Valerie

I have searched high and low for a planning/landscaping package for the
Mac and have come up with nothing.  Books That Work told me that they are
working on a version for the Mac but were unsure of the release date.

The only Mac programs are Sunset Western Garden Book and their new Problem
Solver. The WGB CD-ROM will help you with plant selection because you can
specify your conditions and it will give you a selection of plants. Even
for non-Westerners, it's pretty useful.
