How to draw a site plan

To draw a site plan, follow these steps:

Determine the scale: Decide the scale you want to use for your site plan. A common scale is 1/8 inch = 1 foot.

Measure the site: Measure the dimensions of the site and any structures or features that you want to include in your plan.

Create a basic outline: Draw a basic outline of the site and any structures, including sidewalks, driveways, and property lines.

Add details: Add details to your site plan, such as trees, shrubs, and other landscaping features.

Add labels and annotations: Label all structures, and include important information, such as property lines, north arrow,and the scale of the plan.

Review and refine: Review your site plan and make any necessary changes or revisions.

Presentation: Once you are satisfied with your site plan, you can present it to stakeholders, clients, or your team.

It’s recommended to use drafting software such as AutoCAD or SketchUp, or a specialized landscape design software, as they have tools and templates

specifically designed for creating site plans.
