In addition to a garden plot map, which we have of all of our 108 individual back garden beds at the Clinton Community Garden, we spent some grant money on professionally made, botanical garden quality metal signage which also had plastic coating on it as well.

It's been about 15 year, and these plot signs have held up very well, so I believe the intitial expense was worth it. You might want to contact your local botanic garden to find out the vendors they use for their waterproof, signage.

Best wishes,

Subj: [cg] What is a good method of marking garden plots?

I am one of the garden coordinators at the
Experimental College Community Garden located on the
U.C. Davis campus in the Central Valley of California.

Our current method of marking plots is with a  1 x 2
wooden stakes with the plot number painted on it.  The
obvious problem is that the wood rots, and the painted
numbers become illegible within a year. 

Does anyone have a better idea to mark plots?
Ideally, the solution would be is cost effective, long
lasting, and not too much work....  (We have close to
500 plots.)

Thank you for your suggestions,
Amy Z
