Looking for good landscaping software package

Post by k boehei » Thu, 04 Apr 2002 02:38:16



We have recently built a home and are interested in finding a decent
landscaping software package that will allow us to experiment ...virtually.
We would like the sort of sofware that would allow you to import a pix of
your home and go from their.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

TIA

We have tried just about everything and the only one more or less manageable
has been Master Landscape & home design by punch! software. It is far from
ideal, but it is a good source to project the growth of the trees and shrubs
around the house and how much or how little you want to plant to begin with.

Keep on planting,

Crashes a lot in win98.  Data files get corrupted.  It was fun to
use, but I got tired of having to redo it when my data got
trashed.  Your Mileage May Vary.

I checked Punch out.... and they have a BIG selection
of various software.

Can you give any advice abt getting a higher end
product from them such as 5 in 1.... or even the Pro
series??
