## Plant Spacing Calculator

So you want to have an ideal garden, or an ideal orchard, where all of the plants are lined up in perfect rows. The thing is, though. How many plants exactly do you need? With the plant spacing calculator, you will be able to answer this question in a few seconds – regardless of whether you want a rectangular grid or a triangular spacing, you will be able to calculate the amount of plants you can fit in no time at all. Make sure to take a look at the mulch calculator, too.

### Rectangular vs triangular spacing

A rectangular grid of plants is fairly simple to understand: you divide the area into squares of equal side length, and put one plant in each corner. On the other hand, if you want triangular spacing, you need to create a lattice of equilateral triangles (they all have sides of the same length, and all internal angles are equal to 60 degrees), and place a plant again in each corner.
