Preparing a landscape plan can be an enjoyable and satisfying experience with a little homework and some simple guidelines. Though helpful, a landscape base map can be drawn without a computer, special software or even expensive drafting supplies to develop a landscape plan. The first step in preparing a landscape plan is to draw a base map. The base map is an accurate representation of the existing landscape, scaled to fit the paper, showing information such as house dimensions, distance to street, location of trees or woods, and driveway and sidewalks, if these are already present in the landscape.
