Garden Plans

This is the year to tackle your yard, making it a beautiful space to play, relax, and entertain with garden plans and design ideas. We have the essential tools you need in our Garden Plan Finder and selection of garden plans. Start by letting us do the garden planning work; take our short Garden Plan Finder quiz. All you have to know is the size of your space, how much sun and moisture your landscape gets, and a few other simple garden conditions that might affect your yard, such as concerns about deer. You'll get detailed plant lists and a plan, as well as an illustration of the garden when it's full-grown. It just takes a trip to your local nursery (or a click to the BHG Garden Store) to acquire all the plants you need for your garden plan. If you know your conditions and are simply looking for inspiring garden plans and design ideas, try one of our nearly 40 free plans. For shade, we have 18 selections that will supply your yard with color and texture. If your yard is sunny, check out our 21 summer garden plans that will have you relishing the blooms and beauty outside your own door. We also have garden plans for vegetable spaces, cottage gardens, small-space gardening, and no-fuss areas.
