How to Plan a Garden Layout
In some areas of the world, the snow is starting to fall while in another Spring has sprung. Still, no matter what time of year it is in your backyard, it’s never too early to start figuring out how to plan a garden layout. There are certain things you need to figure out before you just start planting vegetation willy-nilly. Here are some tips on how to plan the perfect garden layout for your backyard.
What You Want vs What You Can Grow
We would all love to have an acre or so to play with where we had rows of every vegetable we’ve ever loved but the reality is, where you live greatly dictates what you are going to be able to plant in your garden. You may want corn, but if you have a small backyard, you might have to skip it for space availability and not to mention the shade it will generate from other sun-loving plants.

Every year I try the seed route. And every year one type of plant or another refuses to grow from seed which I then have to hunt down that plant, or plants, from a nursery. But with each failure come knowledge of what went wrong. I have a shorter growing season in my new place of 6 years than where I came from, which pretty much you could at least grow lettuce year ’round. So it’s been a challenge of what seeds are better for the shorter season. Gardening is all a big experiment. It helps to keep all of your sketches of each year so you can rotate your crops accordingly, too.
