Gardening tips for beginners
A garden planner is a nifty tool used to help you plan and keep records of your garden using measurements, along with a grid pattern. It’s particularly helpful for visualizing the entire garden and spacing out your plants to ensure they have enough room to grow.

You can use a journal-style notebook as your garden planner. Or you can go with an online garden planner which includes 2D and 3D graphics, but maybe only if you’re techy—Summer Rayne Oakes, author of How to Make a Plant Love You and host of Plant One On Me on YouTube, says the online version may be a bit too complicated for a beginner.
