Don't get me wrong, CAD still has it's place, but it's definitely not in the marketing and sales side. There are way too many programs that handle 3D and rendering so much better. If you have the time try using google sketchup mixed with Bunkspeed Hypershot for some 3D renderings. Its all about the creativity!
Thanks for reply, I am sure other designers on the site will appreciate your input.

Regarding, Realtime Landscape Architect, Chief Architect, Sketchup/Mixed with Bunkspeed Hypershot... do these software image plant database inclusive? Or do we have to collect the images and build our down database.
