I, like you, are very proficient with ACAD. I use ACAD for laying out most of my work, then I import it into Pro Landscape. Once you get all your blocks together I am sure you could use ACAD instead of PL. But to easch his own, if you were going to choose between purchasing ACAD or PL for doing landscape designs then it makes sense to buy PL. If you are going to be doing 3D or architectural drwaings with a little landscaping, then use ACAD.
