square foot gardening has been all the rage this summer. But if you're fan of uniform and consistently spaced plantings, consider using a template to take it to the next level ... This template by Chiot's Run is made from a square foot piece of scrap plywood with holes drilled into it. Holes are drilled for 3 or 4 inch spacing of seeds or plants. After using the templates for the initial planting, the creator sanded and painted her templates to protect them from use in the garden. Photos and template by Chiot's Run.
