I know many gardeners don’t plan their gardens or beds down to the last detail. More often than not, I do the same – even when my best intentions are to follow my thoughtfully laid-out plan — a key plant isn’t available, I can’t afford the stone I picked out, etc. But now that I’m designing for others, I have to present a plan — even if it ultimately changes. And although I love sketching out ideas, I’d rather do the detailed drafting on the computer.
What about you? Do you hit the nursery or the pad of paper first?
