Sherry, I have only the barest of ideas about online design tools. Until recently, I didn't know that something like this was available
- certainly not for free use.
Years ago, I had the clunkiest sort of software that I'd picked up somewhere. Honestly, I don't know how things might have improved with software. I am sure that there is software that is an improvement and there may well be online freebies for our use, as well
Now downloading something . . . I am very reluctant to do that unless it is some bona fide outfit and something I'm paying for. But, if it is just an online program, that might be different and safe.
Besides MotherEarthNews, there is a [url=https://www.gardeners.com/on/demandware.store/Sites-Gardeners-Site/default/Page-KitchenGardenDesigner]Gardener's Supply Kitchen Garden Planner.[/url] It does things 1 bed at a time, I suppose. It may be tedious to use this with a garden of some size.
I came across [url=https://www.seedtoplate.co.uk/]a seed company in the UK.[/url] that seems quite useful but only if the plot is small. I tried it out a little and had to set it for 1/4th of my smallest garden! (Actually, there is 1 smaller garden but I hadn't a clue how to plot a ~ 30' x 21' x 37' triangle!) Still, this program seemed useful to me.
Jung Seed Company has a [url=https://gardenplanner.jungseed.com/gardenplanner/gardenplanner.html#]Vegetable Garden Planner.[/url] Once again, it is a free trial or, you can use it at any time but not save anything until you pay. I noticed something about it in their catalog.
I can imagine myself making some use of garden planners like these. My old drawings on graph paper haven't been updated in a decade
