Hey ETW

Everything looks great and your information has been a big help to my company and I. Thanks for keeping this thread going. I was wondering if you could recommend a good design software? we have always drawn them out on paper in the past but it seems like this is a thing of the past. Can you give me some input on this?

thanks

Just got ordered the book today. It may have already been talked about, but how often do they do GROW? Is it an annual event? Thanks.

Dynascapes will be a good design software to get you started. It has a color module and will have a 3D module soon. There are more advanced ones out there for $15k, but bang for the buck Dynascapes will work.

GROW is an annual conference, held every year in Feb.

Hey Jarod, just saw the article in Lawn & Landscape looks good, those writeups are always fun. It seemed like there was a screw up in the editing dept. though...or am I totally overlooking the end of the article?

Truth be told Tony, I haven't even seen it yet, so you are one step ahead here. They contacted me, I went through the interview, and sent some pics in. Beyond that I didn't know which issue it was in or even what it was going to say. This is one of five magazines we're in this spring, some are short, others are 9 pages. Not all our targeting our company specifially, some are discussing outdoor living, etc.

Which month did it end up in?
