I was wondering if there is any garden design software that is, at least in part, akin to a big old sheet of graph paper? I want to design and organize and keep track of what I have, and place things optimally....
We bought a house last July in the Santa Cruz Mountains. It's flat (at least, where I'm doing anything it is). There's an asymmetrical fence line due to the fence marking the boundary between the flat and the vertical that goes down to the river. It's clay dirt, with a ton or so of nice black and white granite rock/gravel (3/4" or so) that covers the driveway but also goes into the general back yard area. There are redwood trees, a large propane tank, and other immobile things I can't move and must live with.
I'm USDA zone 9b, American Horticultural Heat zone 3,4 and Sunset zone 7.
