A logo is part of the 'branding' of your landscape design consultancy and will of course be used over and over again on many documents (both colour and black and white) so it deserves some thought and trialing. The logo and information about the site location, direction of north and scale are often combined as shown in the figure below. For even greater efficiency, text information in title blocks is best organized as replaceable fields such that inputting details of site location, scale etc. is a straightforward process.

Here are some more logos used in drawings by some of the landscapers in the GardenCAD community.
Just like AutoCAD, GardenCAD allows the use of blocks. The logo is created once as a separate GardenCAD drawing and then inserted into subsequent drawings (as a block). Once drawn, there is no need to redraw symbols in subsequent plans. This applies to logos and other site details as well as planting symbols.
