Design on a Grid
Here is an example of a more advanced way of using GardenCAD.
Let's imagine that we wanted to place an area of paving into a design, but wanted the orientation of the paving to match a line at an angle of - 35 degrees to the horizontal. It is simpler to draw the paving using orthogonal snap settings, rotate the group and then move into position than it is to try and work out a complex grid setting so you can draw the outline of the paving in situ.

Other types of grid and different values for the angle are possible. The figure below shows a GardenCAD user placing plant symbols on a 45 degree angle.
