Has anyone used a landscaping program that really works? I'm not interested in hardscaping features as I can do that with a pencil and paper but I am interested in a program that allows me to draw my own lines, has a deep selection of plants, and can show what a landscape would look like after a number of years. I am a new member and don't know how things work yet, but I would very much appreciate any thoughts that other members could share on these programs. Thank you
Vernandrue, I suggest Google SketchUp. You can design anything with it...from little screws to houses to buildings and entire landscapes. There are literally hundreds of pre-drawn trees, garden furniture and structures contributed by users all over the world. There's a free downloadable version, and more importantly, plenty of online tutorials for beginners and advanced users.
