    I am looking for a low cost design program. I mainly want to be able to use a photo of a property and add landscaping to it. Any recommendations? Thanks

    You probably want to check out "pro landscape" we're currently researching it as well for next season, there are others but so far this one seems to be the best all around.

    Yeah but you will make that back pretty quick. I think it's a good investment.

    When it sells me $20K + jobs I think it's worth the investment. These days customers expect to see high tech if they are going to be shelling out large sums of money. Honestly, who would you buy from the guy down the street just telling you what he is going to do or the guy that is SHOWING you what he is going to do?

    "Low Cost" changes from person to person. It is better to buy a good piece of software instead of wasting money on junk. I mean there is junk out there that costs few hundred dollars. Landscape Pro saves you A LOT of time and stream lines the design, to proposal, to orders to crews, to completion/invoicing. You will regret purchasing/ wasting money on cheap software that you will finally move to something like Landscape Pro. Landscape Pro is a bargin compared to DynaScape which is amazing software but carries a price tag of 5k+. Which is worth it by far if you are big time installer / have on staff architect or designer. I have used both and formally was educated in college with Dynascape. I use Landscape Pro due to lower cost and it works great for what we need now and in the future. Dynascape was just little over kill for us or I would of purchased it.

    Just check out Landscape Pro, you will not regret it. They have a lot on their website and are more than willing to talk and answer any of your questions. The people on the phone are very knowledgable about their product unlike many companies that hire people for 8/hour just to take orders and read off scripts for questions.
