Garden planning via iPhone and iPad

Garden planner for the ornamental garden
Dan offer of good planning software for the ornamental garden is unfortunately quite manageable - especially in the free area. Also, our former Mein-schöner-Garten-Planer retired with the relaunch of the website, because it was based on the so-called Flash technology, which is only partially compatible with our new website. An alternative is the English-speaking gardenplanner. With it you can design your own dream garden on white graph paper in 2D. Depending on leisure, so handsome garden plans are created, which can also be printed out.
gardenplanner puts the main focus on the pure garden design in comparison to the kitchen garden planners. True to the motto: How can I make the space available to me according to my wishes.
Garden planning software - extensive but complicated
Paid garden planners as stationary software for the domestic computer are hardly offered these days, besides, they are usually quite complex and usually in English. But there is at least one variant for the small budget: 3D Garden - A software that can be planned in 3D. The emphasis is on "can", because the entry into digital garden planning is not that easy. The software offers many possibilities, but also requires time and training in the functions. Anyone who is impatient and does not want to invest time in the learning phase will hardly be happy with it. For software-loving garden architects, the software offers a lot of potential for just under € 30.
Garden planning with digital drawing programs
If you are interested in the subject of digital illustration, you may also be interested in purchasing a design program such as Adobe Illustrator or Coral Draw. Although the software is complex and requires a long training period, it can also do a great deal: you can, for example, design a symbol for each plant species and save it as a permanent design element in a library. After this preliminary work, planting plans for perennial beds on the computer can then be designed quite quickly. Many of the floor plan drawings for our design suggestions from the "before and after" section are also created using Adobe Illustrator. A disadvantage of these programs is of course the high price: Adobe Illustrator is available in the latest version only as a rental software and costs as an annual license around 250 ¬ - certainly too much for a one-off gardening. Somewhat cheaper is Coral Draw - the version X6 costs about 100 €.
