I am curious to see what computer programs people are using to design? After looking at my chicken scratch notes and diagrams, I would love to create something more like this:

Always looking for interesting plants for pollinators and food! Bonus points for highly, and pleasantly scented plants.

Well chicken scratches often represent what it will actually look like in the real word better.

Have you tried Sketchup? 2D and 3D modelling software "for everyone"... Smiling

I visualize poorly, so I use an app. called 'TaDa', that is actually designed for wedding planning. It allows you to import a photo, (in my case, a photo of a yard), then lets you cut out plants/whatever from other photos and move them around. As an example, this house had a single shrub between the 2 windows, so I added the ornamental grass, the yellow daylilies, and the pink shrub.
