The Q&A Archives: Software

Question: I was wondering if you offered software for my computer that would download info from your website and help me maintain and design my gardens. If you don't do you have any suggestions that would take a picture of my house, have the plants, offer maintenance plans, prunning, propagation know.

New homeowner addicted to your plants and gardening and want the best yard on my street.

Answer: I have used several landscape design programs. The choice really depends upon your computer comfort level. Better Homes and Gardens puts out a simple garden design package. It's user friendly and the results are good. Sierra Software markets LandDesign. It is very complete, including irrigation systems and hardscape elements. It's reasonably easy to use. A program by Eagle Point is similar. All of these Landscape Design CD's are available at office supply stores and many of them can be tried out before purchase. I think any of the above will produce a decent design without overwhelming the designer. Good luck with your new project!
