    I am seriously considering buying a program like pro landscape. But before I shell out the money, I would like to see what it is capable of.
    Can you show us some of you old creations you have done with a software program?
    I am most interested in image editing?

    Thanks a lot.

    How about before pics, design pics, and built pics?

    There are a ton of design websites out there that offer this service. Almost none of them ever show a picture of the built work. Many times you'll see things that look perfectly right in the design photo, but then when you look at the original photo you see that it can't possibly work (most often grade changes, but also misrepresentation of space). I see a lot of people fool themselves as well as the client with these softwares.

    Nobody has any? I thought people used these type of programs. Someone has to have some somewhere.

    When I do a computer design, I make sure the customer is aware that its just a general design and plants can change upon availability.Usually the high dollar plants or a desired plant requested doesnt change unless run by the customer first.The customer is also made aware that if they want to hire a designer for big bucks and give me the plan thats fine too.Ill try to post a small job I just did.

    This a design I just did and hasnt been installed yet, as you can see it needs more plants than shown and thats just the general foundation design which will be fitted with filler plants as we see fit at time of install.The customer is made aware of this.
