< 2. App description >
This application helps you design your garden. Using it, you can see how it looks like after a new tree or flower is planted at certain location in your garden. In order to do that, you first take a picture of your garden with iPhone, use that picture as the background of this application. Then you may get some pictures of the plants which you are interested. You can add the plant picture on top of the background, and drag it with your finger to different locations of the garden. This will makes it easier for you to decide which plant is a good fit for your garden, and where in your garden is the best location to plant it. This application will bring more fun to your gardening.
If you have any suggestion on its future enhancement, please drop me a comment in the review section of App store.

< 4. Known issue >
After you added some number of plants, you may get a Memory Low message. It means that your iPhone system memory is running low, therefore you cannot add more plants. Each plant picture consumes memory. But there is a way that you can workaround this. You may save your current design, restart this application, and then use the saved design as the new background. After that, you will be able to add more plants to your design. If this problem happens again, you can power off your iPhone, then start it again.
