Organize and identify what grows in your garden with personalized garden signs.

Experienced horticulturists urge home gardeners to first plan a design for their planting areas on a computer. They also recommend the use of signs to identify individual plants and groupings, especially when it comes to vegetables.


Whether you’re a new or seasoned gardener, you likely start out planting all your gardens with the best intentions. Diligently tilling the soil, adding all the right fertilizers and finally dropping seeds into the dirt. Once those little sprouts break through the ground, can you remember where you planted everything? Even if you’re planting seedlings or flowers, it can be remarkably difficult to tell one plant from another without some help. One of the golden rules of master gardening is to “know where you sow.” How else will you recognize a weed from a vegetable?


Planning a Garden Design

To have your landscape look like a botanical garden, put thought and research into your design concept. Choose plants that flourish in specific conditions (sun or shade), require varying degrees of maintenance and provide interest all year. By planning a design for your garden, you see which plants work and those that do not. Start a yearly garden journal to track what gets planted and make notes on what you should do differently next time or even later in the season.


Use PlaqueMaker Garden Signs Year After Year

Like plants, garden signs can come in every size, shape and color. The best choice is one that is durable and reusable year after year. Our custom engraved garden signs are available in different sizes and materials like wood, plastic, stainless steel, bronze, titanium, copper and brass. One of the most popular sizes is our 4-inch by 2-inch sign with 10-inch stakes. They are ideal for implementing the binomial nomenclature plant identification system used by public gardens, which lists a plant’s species name and genus.


Personalize Markers for Memorial Gardens

If you design a garden setting in memory of a loved one, select one of PlaqueMaker’s garden signs in a larger size and personalize with their photo, name, a favorite quote or scripture. Coordinate the smaller signs for plant identification with the photo or clip art. Your memory garden will be a peaceful retreat for all those who visit.


The More Custom Signs You Order, The More You Save

Whether you have a small herb garden in a window box or a sweeping landscape full of flowers, chances are you’ll need more than one garden sign. PlaqueMaker is the place to go for garden signs. We offer quantity discounts on custom orders. The more you purchase, the more you save. Design them yourself using our easy-to-use online design tools to rival any botanical garden.
