    Hey guys,
    I am thinking about trying one of these comp. programs to design some landscaping. I do the convetional drawing right now, but I would like to see what I can do with the comp. software. I don't know what program I should try or buy. If you have any suggestions let me know, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Thanks, Zach

    I currently have PUNCH! but will probably be buying Pro Landscape this week. I used Punch for almost 3 years. It is very affordable, around $70.00, and easy to use. If you are just starting out, I would recommend Punch because of the low cost.
    Pro Landscape is extremely expensive, $1200.00, but it has a lot more features and the 2D designs seem much easier to use. A few years ago I couldn't justify the cost for Pro, but now my business has grown and I hope to have Pro pay for itself this season. Good Luck.
