: I seem to recall seeing someone post some pointers to finding software for
: planning large plots of land. I have a 10 acre parcel which is partially
: treed, and would like to redevelop it for wildlife - and wildflowers! Any
: on-line or commercial software sources which list plant and tree varieties
: and which also track growth would be appreciated. I do not have a CD-Rom...
: This might be a problem? Thanks!
For about $35 you can get LandDesigner for Windows from Green Thumb
software. (Try Best Buy or mailorder from PC Connection). Helped a
friend with a 5 acre lot - starting with a bare patch - and this came in
very handy for visualizing growth. The database that comes with it is
also very handy - lets you pick according to your situation.
Before you start, though, a MUST READ is _Noah's Garden_, all about the
author's efforts to return her plot to nature and bring back the critters,
birds, and bees. Fascinating read.
