Garden Templates

Are you just getting started with vegetable gardening and looking for some ideas on how to plan your garden? A couple other horticulture agents and I have put together some simple garden plans that will get you started on your garden. These garden plans are all 4 ft x 8 ft gardens, ideally designed to be raised beds. However, raised beds aren’t necessary! If your garden space is bigger, you can simply use several of the garden templates end to end. (If you stack them side by side, you won’t be able to reach the middle!) The gardens are designed so  you don’t have to walk in any of the planting areas.  These garden plans are guidelines, so make them work for you! (Oh, and sorry about the sometimes-garish color combinations. I might get those fixed at some point.)

Two helpful resources to use with the garden plans:

Vegetable Garden Planting Guide

Recommended Vegetable Varieties



If all these garden plans don’t get you excited to get something planted, then I don’t know what will!

  1. Thanks! I’m in the middle of planning a school garden. These templates are extremely helpful!!

  2. I love these layouts… a great place to start planning. I will be sure to share these layouts with others.

  3. Thanks for the templates! I wasn’t sure where to start, very helpful.

  4. The templates are great! I put in raised beds this year and was looking for a guide/map on planting. Would like to have suggestions for varieties, when to plant and how many seeds/plants to plant in the suggested space included with the templates – instead of having to go to a different like/publication. This would make it easier to use for new gardeners like myself. Thanks!

  6. Spent a long time looking for something like this online, but was thrilled when I finally stumbled on your site! These templates are perfect, I have my whole garden mapped out (this is my first garden ever, and I have two black thumbs) and will begin planting this week. Thanks for all of the great templates!!!
