Free Garden Plan
Our free Planting Guide for this landscape plan includes a larger version of the illustration, a detailed layout diagram, a set of five regional plant lists, lists of alternatives for each plant, and complete instructions for installing the garden. (Free, one-time registration allows unlimited access to Planting Guides for all garden and landscape plans.)
This landscape plan features a safe area for play sets and sandboxes, plus a place for grown-ups to visit and see what's going on in the yard. There is plenty of space for growing vegetables and for using garden spaces to teach about plants -- and just to enjoy. A sweeping two-foot wall provides plenty of opportunity for "tight-rope walking" and sitting quietly.
