Hi, my name is Daisy. I'm an artist and I'm going to show you how to draw trees in a plan. So it's kind of like if you're going to do a plan for your garden. It's all bird's eye, almost like a map. So what I'm going to do is draw the outline of my garden. It's a little bit odd shaped which is why the outline is going to help. So that's my garden. I want to have some paths through it so I'm going to draw those in to the fences, maybe you've got a little courtyard here and that goes into the house, then another courtyard at this end. So once we know where all the paths are you're going to draw the trees in. So the trees are really simple and just circles filled in wherever you want to plant something specific and you can use different colored greens. You can show different trees or different sizes. So my idea is to have a cool tree lined path to the end, maybe there's a gate here that goes out, all different trees and have a big tree in the middle of this area and a couple trees around here. So wherever you want a tree, you're just going to draw a cool filled in circle and I find the best way to make it different is to use different colors and different sizes for each tree. If you really want you can have a key to the side to show what each tree means. And then you can explain what that is. That way anyone can read it and know what you're talking about. If you want to show where the grass is, you can just put in really simple shading lines all the way around. And there we go. My name is Daisy and that's how you draw trees in a plan.
