A site plan is a diagram that shows the layout of a property or “site”. A site plan may include the location of buildings and structures. As well as, property features such as driveways, walkways, landscaped areas, gardens, pools or water, trees, terraces and more.
Site plans are used by garden designers and landscapers to create garden and landscape designs and to show changes to a property. They are also used by homeowners to plan home improvement projects such as a new pool, garage or deck.
Site plans are also an important part marketing real estate properties to show the complete property, including key outdoor features. Site plans give potential homebuyers an idea of the size, scale, and orientation of the property, better than photos do.
