    I guess I need to find an application to help me with designing. I do okay drawing out plans and all but it's clear to me know that I get a better view initially from a picture.

    I just have to see it. I did this one with MSPaint. I showed it to the customer to ask if this is the direction they want to head. He said "go for it".

    I've seen some renderings from software that don't look as good.

    I'd like to compare it to a few if anyone cares to post it. Or I could post the blank photo if anyome cared to show what they can do. I'm not asking for any free design. I've done that already. Just comparing software applications and images.

    I've done some things with a program called Realtime Landscaping Pro. It's actually been a pretty good program for the price - you can either do the picture thing or you can create your own 3D design, which has sold a few deals for me. the website is - it's actually a really strong program for the price $99.95

    Yeah I can. I just didn't figure it would be usable after it's be reduced. Give it a try.

    I did this in a few minutes with Pro Landscape. This is just an old version so the plant database is limited and there are some other screwy things about it. I bet it is better now. I bet you could pick up an old copy for $400 bucks or something and upgrade if you really like it.
