Honestly....no, not much time on my hands however, i thought i give either prolandscape or dynascape a shot...just b/c im very meticulous w/ my design work....Come to think of it i probably should just sub it out b/c times a ticking and im busy enough taking care of other things.....what do you think?UNISCAPER said:It depends directly on how how much time you will be spending using it, thus learning to use it, and if your market even calls for it's use.
Time is the biggest factor. All software takes focus off something else that needs attention in your operation. Do you have that time to invest?
How very true! Unless you have the "dirt time" you cannot expect to take your ideas and put them to CAD. Anyone with some computers skills can put lines on a piece of paper but knowing what those designs equate to out in the field are another thing.Dreams To Designs said:If you expect the software to help you design, you have been mislead by their titles. "Design" software is simply a digital pencil or a drafting tool. The designs come from your experience, knowledge and abilities.

"Design" software is simply a digital pencil or a drafting tool. The designs come from your experience, knowledge and abilities. If you need design assistance. Work with designers or take some classes at Cumberland County College or better yet Rutgers in New Brunswick. Every winter Rutgers offers professional education short classes in all facets of landscaping and turf.
