The final design is
usually drawn on A1 or on A0 paper (16 times the area of a normal A4 sheet)
with a scale suitable to the project. This might be 1:20 for a London garden,
or 1:200 for a large country project.
The final design is just
one of the key drawings. Some planting plans will be based on a grid, as shown
in the lower plan. Here the major setting-out line is shown in red, with blue
for the planting lines at right angles. For this planting method, plants are
deliberately placed in a wave pattern, as the diagram at right shows. Planting
plans are usually at a larger scale, in this case 1:50.
