Did you start with a site plan?
Hi ya'll! New to the boards! I'm wondering if you usually start with sketches for your landscaping projects. I'm looking at getting a site plan to start. Thoughts? Do you usually just wing it?

I sure don't use terrible web sites like that one

I most certainly would never use anything from a site recommended in what appears to be a spam post.

If you really are serious about landscaping, you can draw your own site plan - you don't need a website to do it.

What you need more is knowledge of zone, sun, shade, moisture, soil and plants for your area.

I drew and modified my landscaping plans by hand. And for years I've created garden site plans long before computers even existed, and modify them as I plant to accommodate spur of the moment changes.

Just discovered this identical post, including commercial link, was posted to the Organic Gardening Forum at 5:24 this a.m.

That site is joke..
The reason why most people can't draw their own plans is because they have no imagination. If they can't actually see it they can't picture it being there.
