Plan-A-Garden lets you create design plans for anything from a patio container garden to a welcoming front walk to your whole yard. Use your mouse to "drag-and-drop" hundreds of different plants to see how their colors and shapes work together. Add in dozens of structures like sheds, fences, gates, and even fountains and fire pits. You can play around with fun elements like garden gnomes, basketball hoops, and swing sets, too. It's easy to experiment with pathways and lawn areas around all of these features. Let us help you build your dream garden!

Design Your Garden

The app fits every home situation. Select from a number of different settings, including entryways, front porches, back patios, and even backyard ponds. There are different housing types, too, ranging from urban, rural, and everything in between. Not seeing what you are looking for? You can upload your own photo to play with.

Visualize Before You Plant

With more than 1,000 plants to choose from, the landscaping possibilities in our Plan-A-Garden app are practically endless. You can experiment with trees, shrubs, perennials, and more for your landscape, which you can filter by type, size, and sunlight needs. A search bar makes it easy to pinpoint a specific plant you might be looking for.

Provide Structure

For some, a landscape is not complete without a few accent structures and focal points. In the Structures tab of the Plan-A-Garden app, add in sheds, gazebos, and gates to customize your space. You'll also find different styles of containers, benches, lighting, and other accessories to suit your style.

Get the Full Effect

Enhance your beautiful landscape with a little texture. Try comparing a red brick patio with one made from paving stones, or see how a wooden deck would look instead with a few clicks of your mouse.
