    Mike, have you looked at Pro Landscape? It is definitely not in the price range of office store software, but it is professional quality software for professional landscape designers. You can delete, or copy any features already existing and add plants, hardscaping structures and even additions to the home. If you are looking for an inexpensive program, sorry, I don't know of any with the features you are looking for.

    Yes, i have vol.12 and it is a direct deal thru Drafix. They now have vol. 13 i havent updated. Very good program, but it wont make a designer out of you. Thats where guys like Kirk go to work. I use the imaging editor mainly, even on simple new yard installs just showing the grass has landed me the job.

    Creter, you can find alternate sources that do sell Pro Landscape, besides individuals, I have never seen it for less than they sell direct. They do discount at trades shows, like the upcoming PANTS next week in Atlantic City. If design is what you do and you have the time to learn new software, Pro Landscape is great software for drawing and presentation.

    Thanks Kirk! Even at regular price quoted on the website I was seeing the potential for this software's customer reach and if it could be obtained cheaper, even better. This software is definitely on my radar!

    Clip also sells Draffix and it marries together for estimates.
