Answer: You have asked a very broad question and it could be applied to a vegetable garden, an herb garden, a perenial garden or a mixed flower garden. I would suggest you take a look at a book or two about gardening to help you begin your planning. One I particuarly like is "Gardening for Dumiies" by Michael MacCaskey, ISBN 1-56884-644-4. In it you will find overviews for evaluating and planning a landscape as well as specialty gardens as well as plant lists and further suggestions in a very practical approach. Good luck with your plans.
