Pros: I really like that I can upload a photo and add new landscaping to it. Many times we are just adding flare to an existing landscape, so it is easier to visualize when you are just adding new plants to what you can actually see in person already.

Cons: It would be nice if you could have a plant selection that is able to be customized to your area or zone. I live in NW Montana, so our selection is quite slim in comparison to other places, and this would make it simpler to add plants to a design.

Pros: Its like the SIMS for adults. Build and create beautiful decks, driveways, pools and gardens for yourself or your client. You can then turn your creation into a walk through presentation for the homeowner. Perfect software to help bring in new clients.

Cons: It was a bit confusing to get the terrain tool to work the way I wanted it to. Other than that as long as you have some computer skills this software is functional and helpful.

Pros: Great outcome once you learn to maneuver the software. Printable projects and easy to use help feature.

Cons: Luckily the help feature is easy because the software takes a great learning curve. I found it difficult to learn as each button click seemed to take me to another space instead of returning me to the original design.

Overall: I downloaded the software after viewing the how to video which made it look simple. It was much more difficult to use than I was lead to believe. You could not just feed in the measurements which the instructions said but you have to nearly build the structure yourself. I could have done that with pen and paper.

Recommendations to other buyers: It's difficult to learn so I'm not sure it was worth the money. There are better programs out there.
