Stephen Covey tells us to "begin with the end in mind." After all, if you don't know where you're going, how will you know when you get there? Even though planning something may not be as fun or interesting as doing that thing, it's really a good idea.

There are all kinds of tools out there to help you plan things. Plan your schedule; plan your finances; plan your wedding. How about your garden? The folks at Better Homes and Gardens have a tool you might be interested in. Oddly enough, it's aptly named "Plan-A-Garden".

With Plan-A-Garden, you can design and lay-out your garden. Choose from prefab layouts, or choose to start with a blank slate. You get to define the space, dragging borders to size it appropriately. Drag and drop from a huge list of objects to incorporate structures, like walkways and patios, as well as more plant-related features, like garden beds, annuals and perennials, trees, and more into your garden. Save your work, send it to a friend, or print it out.

Plan-A-Garden is a free online tool. You have to register to use it, but if you check- and uncheck all the appropriate boxes, you shouldn't be deluged with spam.
