The number of plants you'll need depends upon which plants you're buying. Some can/should be planted closer together than others. Most will have a recommendation (i.e. plant on 6" centers). Here's a chart to help you determine how many plants you'll need, depending upon spacing:

On 6? centers ? plants per square foot = 4
On 8? centers ? plants per square foot = 2.25
On 9? centers ? plants per square foot = 1.77
On 10? centers ? plants per square foot = 1.44
On 12? centers ? plants per square foot = 1
On 18? centers ? plants per square foot = .44
On 24? centers ? plants per square foot = .25

You have 175 square feet to fill.

Hope this information is helpful.
