    I am looking for a good program that will allow me to take a picture of a clients yard and add enhancements to it so that I can show them why they need to spend that $5000.00 on a watergarden or mulch bed.

    I am willing to spend money on a good easy to learn program (not necessarily looking for a $50.00 bargin) but I don't want to over buy either.

    Any have any exp with this? Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

    They sell (4) programs:

    1. Designware - lets you take a pic. then add plants/hardscapes/etc.

    2. Planscape - lets you do an overhead draft to use on site.

    3. Landquote - program used with Planscape that qives quotes for jobs.

    4. Designware at Night: bring in designs from Designware, and add lighting features.

    all (4) programs cost I believe about $700.00 well worth it.

    Designware gives very good results that make selling your ideas easy. People fall in love with how their property can look 'after' and it's hard for them to say no.
