I bought prolanscape several years ago and chose it over dynascape because the learning curve was not as great...previously owned vectorworks, which offered little help you didn't have to pay for...they, vectorworks, taught concepts and general usage, but didn't adress specifically landscape design, like scaling a plot plan etc..
I was impressed with dynascape and would have bought, but the sales rep told me there was no kind of 30 day money back guarantee...or way to try it before you buy it...maybe has changed now...also looked at dynascape because they were developing a scheduling program to work with their other software...all their stuff looks very polished.

Prolandscape is very powerful, maybe not as polished and some functionality was spotty such as plant databases, plant symbols and difficulty with variius small details like adding a fence or road, asphalt. Product support was excellent in my view...
Prolandscape also has started to add irrigation layout and design...they need to add pressure loss, pipe sizing etc...like raincad
