April Update

Since we launched the layout tool we have been hard at work trying to get in the additional functionality you've been requesting. On Friday we released our first major update. It included many smaller fixes as well as several major additions.

To see all the new features in action you can watch the update video or read more below.

Vegetable Layout Exporting

Our main Vegetable Garden Planner has several powerful tools, unfortunately, these were separate from our layout tool. After the update, once you have finished laying out your garden you can export it directly into our main tool. You can then take advantage of our gardening to-dos, garden journal, the garden logbook, and the rest of the features.

Garden Guide Integration

We've integrated our garden layout tool with our garden guides. Now you can get garden guides for all of the plants in your layout by clicking on the Garden Guide icon. These guides will help you plant, grow, harvest, and store your vegetables.

Snapshot Wizard

The Snapshot Wizard addresses the most common request we've had. Using the wizard you can create an image from your garden that you can save or print. This image can also have a grid on it, helping to determine spacing when you are planting.

There is a separate video introducing the Snapshot Feature.

Toggling Labels

You can now toggle the display of both plant labels and plant types with the click of an icon.

We hope you enjoy these features. As always, let us know your thoughts and what you'd like to see!
