Helet - Thank you for your kind words. I am kind of old school having drawn by hand for nearly 20 years before I gave in and started looking for a software program to draw with. I came across Vectorworks in its infancy and long before they evolved to include Landmark. I simply loved the idea that I could continue to think and work the same as I did when I drew by hand. Something intuitive and task oriented. Also - I got to create all of my own plant symbols that replicated what I drew by hand. It is now capable of doing the rendering - but I still choose to do all of that by hand and finish the drawing in a way that maintains an artistic feel.

All the best.

Hi Blair. Thank you so much for the info!
I feel the same and have also been drawing by hand for about 15 years but I have so much design work that I have to look at alternative and faster ways. I have been spoiled with my daughter coloring my drawings better than I do(I am in to much of a hurry) but she has started university and I fear she will have less time to help me now.
The first plan I saw on your Houzz got me all exited, I could see it was something else! I do not like the average packages out there, it looks flat and undefined. Yours is really beautiful, they all look like art works, like you should frame them.
I will make work of this info and thank you so much again!!!
