Does anyone know of an app where you tell it how large your garden space is and what you want to plant and it plots it out for you.....giving you the layout that yields the most? I think it's a great idea and it would consider lighting.... what gets planted next to what....etc.

But it's so much fun doing that oneself all winter! It's an I teresting to have an app, but then people have such varied ideas about whether to plant in beds or rows or square foot.... and there are so many site specific things to adjust for....

There are quite a few gardening apps out there, but I think there are so many factors that come into play in a specific garden that any app predicting yields would necessarly have a large error margin.

As for measuring your garden space, I find this tool very useful.
