I don't think this is one of the products on your list. I like the program, but first, the choice of flowers is limiting, i.e., there is no option for a pink coreopsis. Also, the flowers are just not as realistic as I would like. I have looked and looked and though I do use this program to determine layout, space, and placement. I finally go back to Word documents with photos of the flowers I want to put together. It seems the programs are all geared towards landscape design and not toward designing single flower beds which is what I would like but have never been able to find.

Hi, Serene. I've never seen this program, but basically that's the problem with all of them. You're correct, what we want is a flower bed design program and not a landscape design program. I don't know if it will ever happen because most of them are geared toward professional landscapers, or the homeowner who just wants to see what the yard will look like with the beds laid out. We could all try e-mailing the software companies and asking but I don't know that there would be enough interest to get them to move on anything.

Thank you - it's so nice to know it's not just me - there really isn't anything out there like we need.
