visio basics question - I want to use it to show where plants are in my yard

Last Modified: 2015-06-23
I've been using visio to document where we are putting plants in our yard, the type of plant, when we bought it, etc.

but it's just relative positions - I took a visio page and started putting plant icons on it.

I want to make it more accurate, with a scale 1" = x', etc.  but don't know how to do that.

How to draw a box that is x' x y', put a bush x' from this edge, etc.

any beginner advice?

It's a bit OCD / compulsive, but figure it'll help me learn visio for real work : )
