What can I put around my arbor/bench+pergola?

Tip from Tamara

Hi, I'm a new gardener and have decided to transform my front garden. It's south facing and I think it would be lovely to have a seating area to enjoy the weather. The space is small and I want to make the most of it. If I place a bench+pergola or arbor in my garden nook, what can I plant around it? Should I let the grass continue under the bench or can I continue my plant bed underneath it? At the moment the border is a sleeping vegetable bed. I welcome alternative ideas.

Garden Design Planner - help needed

Comment from Kari

I am trying to set up a plan of my garden in the Garden Design Planner. But I can't find any instructions as to how to do this, other than descriptions of the various menu items, and I am not having any luck.

I have found where to enter the size of the garden, and I have set the grid size to 0.25 m but it is showing as 1.0 m / square. This is not very helpful if I want to create an accurate plan.

Now I am trying to draw a quarter-circle bed in the bottom left hand corner, and I can't figure out which drawing tool to use. I tried the curved tool and I can't get a proper corner, so I tried the line tool and the line didn't show up at all.

Are there any videos or tutorials on this tool?

Thank you
