Landscape Design SOftware

tho929masAugust 28, 2014
I am interested in using Landscape Design software for some projects in our community. A search shows items from $1500 Are there any local/state rules regarding disposal that we could reference? $50 compatible on Windows and a few for Mac. Some reduced function apps are available on iPad. Most low-end packages are discredited by user reviews. Any suggestions of favorable packages for iPad or Mac; can use Windows XP if necessary.

The software is expensive and the ones that let you do whatever you like are more expensive and you need more experience to use them. I use cad, photoshop, sketchup, podium, and vray. Plus putting together presentations in in design, illustrator and PowerPoint. Really for small projects if you know what you are doing you might want to just hand draw to scale.

Hand draw on graph paper. It's far easier and more accurate. Software doesn't do diddly for the knowledge and talent of the wielder. All it does is make it faster to create bad output.
