Well laid out. I only had to look at the Shade section. Be careful what you plant. Like mcmillan_c states he/she would not recommend mint. Mint does get out of hand and needs to be contained.

She mentions mint and shows photos of gout weed. Two plants that I would never recommend to plant in the ground.
