    Master Landscaping Pro Version 10 is good for landscaping and hardscaping. I picked it up for $39.99

    Drafix, Pro Landscape is excellent for hardscape and landscape 3D imaging. I have also used software put out by EP Henry with success.

    Been using Dynascape for 7 years, very professional looking designs, not the 29.99 specials if you know what I mean. I spent one winter practising on it and took the 3 day course. It brought a new dimension to my business.

    I use Dynascape, Design Imaging, and the EP Henry software. They all work well for me.

    The Dynascape by unilock just does the pavers. They used to have different versions for lighting, ponds, and pavers but did away with it. The pond version just did ponds, lighting just did lighting and the paver version just did pavers. I assume that they didn't sell well because most people needed a product that did more than just one aspect of landscaping. Now it is all in one package and you can contact them and they will send you a free trial. They have a Dynascape LT version that does most things very well and includes most of these features.

    I watched Dynascape's demo online & it didn't show a 3D picture like Proscape offers. Do they have that feature? I think that would be pretty important to me if I were going to spend the money on a digital program. If not, I can get the same picture on paper for a whole lot less.

    No 3-D with dynascape. It only gives a 2-D drawing.

    Does it just do the layouts though like the demo shows? I am wanting a program that can show them an actual picture from a side view, not a layout view.

    well my $29.99 program looks professional and I landed every job I've bid on from using it. It was well worth the money and I didn't have to spend 1500 to get a decent program
