    what do you guys use for showing you clients what their landscape will look like once they tell you that they want something done. I have a customer that cant really visualize it like i can, and i cant draw well. so what is an easy to use program that i could use? thanks

    I use a program called sierra land designer 3D. under $50.00 and I have been told my program does a better job then some of the 800 dollar programs. Clients love seeing the finished product before before we even break ground.

    take drawing lessons. take the time and make much much more money.

    a couple renderings with a somewhat rendered plan can double or triple your profit. my father in law had a guy do a normal foundation plating in front yard. prolly 3500-4000 bucks to you and me. he charged 15k. BUT he also had drawn 4 renderings of the house in color pencil, one an aerial view, then had them framed.

    thats money for drawing.
