Want to plan your garden, but can’t find the necessary super Flash, Web 2.0 beta, patent-pending, drag-and-drop utility to do it? Try new British service GrowVeg.com, which is intended for that exact purpose. While it’s a premium pay-for utility, something we rarely cover at Rev2, its demo video and free 30 day trial is enough to impress any garden fanatic.
The Flash-based service features a drag-and-drop interface that lets you interactively plan your garden like you’re using a piece of software. Starting with a metre-based grid, you can specify the lengths and structure (i.e. pond, porch, etc.) After this, you can drag your desired plants and vegetables into the space and appropriately space them out. Once plotted, you can print the plan and get to the dirty work.
After your first 30 days, the service costs £15 (US$32 or €20 approx) for an annual subscription. The site also includes useful “GrowGuides” to help you with your garden. Garden lovers and creators alike should give GrowVeg a try — after all, paper or Microsoft Paint is far too Web 1.0 for your garden planning!
