Pros: Gcadplus is a powerful CAD program that a landscape designer can use to quickly create professional designs for presentation to clients, use in house, etc. It comes with everything I have ever needed and much much more. Other programs designed for homeowner use are absolutely terrible and more "mainstream" software options cost 10 times as much or more. I've owned the software for 5 years and they are constantly updating it and have never charged a penny. There is a slew of online videos to teach you all you need to know to get started (moving from drafting with pens and pencils). If you ever run into an issue there's probably a video to teach you how to get past what you're having problems with.

Cons: The company is based in Australia so consequently getting in touch with them can be a bit tricky if you are say in the US - additionally a good portion of the videos and support blocks etc. are in Metric vs. Imperial (that's not to say that there isn't an imperial version). These are minor gripes.

Overall: Digitized all my designs, improved the quality/accuracy of my designs, helped sell and keep copies of my designs. I could go on and on it has changed my work for the better in so many ways.
