    What kind of irrigation design software does everyone use? I just bought a new laptop for this kind of software. Also if it does landscape design thats a plus. I still would do the landscape design by hand but it would be nice to show the clients what their landscape would look like years down the road. Thanks for any help!

    Usually by hand. There are some that do both.

    If it is a small job I'll do it by hand. But, if I want to impress them I'll do it on AutoCad.

    Pro Landscape is another one that alot of people use for landscape design. RB makes RainCAD or something like that.

    We use RainCAD exclusively. One of the best and easiest to use programs out there.

    It's made by Software Republic http://www.softwarerepublic.com

    They developed it originally for Rain Bird and then kept it when RB pulled the plug about 10 years ago. They just came out with a new version.
