if you have the time, it is well worth the effort to check into this program. I'm sure others on this site will agree

I use Dynascape for all my designs. Attached is the latest plan for my patio at my house. (I'm on vacation right now building it)

Did you ever try pro landscape vol. 12? I have it and have a hard time with hardscaoing with it. Of couse i really didnt give it a lot of time needed.

I don't like Pro Landscape much. not nearly as nice as the graphics I can produce with dynascape.

Pro Landscape works very well for hardscape and landscape design, both plan style and 3D imaging, but if you are looking for something easy and geared just towards hardscape, look at the software offered by EP Henry. As most manufacturers product design and colors are similar, the EP Henry software will suffice for getting your point across. It is substantially less expensive than full service landscape drafting software, but it is also limited to what it can do. If you just need software to get your hardscape ideas across to your clients, check out the EP Henry software, or their new design it for you service.

we use Dynascape as well. Although on some of the smaller jobs I do use the EP Henry software so that it gives the homeowner a better visual.

Dynascapes looks like a awesome program!!! 2500 is a big nut to pay for it though!!!

I think i will bite the bullet and buy it this winter. Since i can not draw good, i'm guessing a computer design program is the way to go? Does anyone still hand draw?
