Mapping a Garden

Just finished the final map for this year of the butterfly garden at hitchcock center. I used MS Word's drawing tools--specifically the autoshapes--for the plants, put ID numbers on them, and used different border and fill colors for the different plants. While this is not a perfect tool for mapping a garden, it's an accessible one and certainly easier than trying to do it with pencil and paper. It's easy to move plants around, add them, or delete them. I wanted something that would be helpful next spring when the same or a different crew is assigned to clean up the garden.
