    • Hi Tim,

      Visio Professional 2003 and 2002 both include a few Garden related shapes

      and stencils in the Building Plan / Home Plan solution. I found these

      Shapes using the Shape Search feature in Visio 2003 - the stencils are:

      Garden Accessories, Planting, and Walls, Shell and Structure. I hope this

      helps.

    • Hi,

      You can find the shapes and save them in a custom stencil.

      You can find the steps in the following article by following the link below:

      http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;840556

      The steps have also been reproduced here for your benefit.

      1.INTRODUCTION

      This step-by-step article describes how to search for shapes in Visio 2003

      and how to save the shapes that are returned in the search results as a

      custom stencil.

      back to the top

      Search for shapes

      To search for shapes, follow these steps:

      1.Configure the properties for your search. To do this, follow these

      steps:

      a.Start Visio 2003 (if it is not already started).

      b.On the Tools menu, click Options.

      c.Click the Shape Search tab.

      d.Under Search locations, specify the locations where you want to search

      for shapes. By default, Visio stencils that are installed on your hard disk

      and Visio stencils that are located in Visio Web Shapes on the Internet are

      searched.

      Click to clear the check box that is next to the location that you do not

      want to search or click to select the check box next to the location that

      you want to search. For example, if you do not want to search the Internet,

      click to clear the The Internet check box.

      e.Under Search for, do one of the following:

      If you want the shapes that are returned in the search results to match

      all the search terms, click All of the words (AND).

      If you want the shapes that are returned in the search results to match

      any search terms, click Any of the words (OR).

      f.Under Results, do one of the following:

      If you want the shapes that are returned in the search results listed in

      alphabetical order by shape name, click Alphabetically.

      If you want the shapes that are returned in the search results listed by

      stencil name, click By Group.

      g.If you want search results to display in a new window, click to select

      the Open results in new window check box.

      h.If you want a warning message to appear when the number of shapes in the

      search results exceeds a specified limit, click to select the Warn when

      results are greater than check box, and then specify the number that you

      want.

      i.Click OK.

      2.Search for the shapes that you want. To do this, follow these steps:

      a.If the Shapes pane is not already open, on the View menu, click Shapes

      Window.

      b.In the Search for Shapes box, type one or more words that describe the

      shape that you want to search for. You can separate words with spaces,

      commas, or semicolons. For example, to find shapes that represent Garden

      shapes, type garden.

      c.Press ENTER.

      The shapes that are returned from your search appear in the stencil in the

      Shapes pane.

      Note If you have an Internet connection and the search properties are set

      to search the Internet, Visio searches Visio Web Shapes for shapes that are

      provided by Microsoft that meet your search criteria and displays those

      shapes in the results.

      d.Drag the shapes that you want from the stencil in the Shapes pane to

      your drawing page.

      back to the top

      Save the search results as a custom stencil

      To save the search results as a custom stencil, follow these steps:

      1.In the Shapes pane, right-click the title bar of the stencil, and then

      click Save As.

      2.In the Save As dialog box, specify a name and a location where you want

      to save the custom stencil, and then click Save. By default, the stencil is

      saved to the following folder on the hard disk:

      Drive:\Documents and Settings\UserName\My Documents\My Shapes

      3.The red asterisk in the title bar of the stencil indicates that the

      stencil is in edit mode. To turn off edit mode, right-click the title bar

      of the stencil, and then click Edit Stencil.

      Hope this helps,

      Thanks and regards,
