    I am looking for a program to help with our annual flower installation. I need to be able to draw what the bed looks like with dementions and then be able to show where the different plants are to go and how many. Any ideas? I know there is CAD out there but i was kinda looking for something a little cheaper maybe.

    Don't go cheap.

    I bought landscape Pro from Drafix a few years ago and it's paid for itself. I think it's designed over 60K in landscaping for me.

    Here's an example....


    The cheaper the program the worse the final results will be.

    all i am looking for is something to make a scetch for my flower install crews to look at when they are planting the flowers. like a blue print scetch.

    Corel Draw works for me. Not in-expensive and IF you can get an older copy of Corel Draw5--is as powerful as you would ever need. Do a search or check E-Bay.
