Comments: The only thing I wish we could do is outline an area and fill in with any symbol we would choose at the plant size we would choose and at the spacing we would choose, as you can do with Pro Landscape.

Comments: The one downside to this software is that it can do so much. This is a downside because I feel guilty using only 1/3 to 1/2 of its capabilities. I keep telling myself that I'll find time to learn the other aspects of it but I am so busy with what I do now that I don't find time.

Comments: Earthscapes has been a great boost to visually communicate our landscape designs to our clients. Their customer support has more than made up for some bumps we experienced with the program years ago. For years, the Earthscapes team has patiently answered all our non techie questions with timeliness and additional resources. We really appreciate them.
Many thanks, Ali and Co

Comments: The Earthscapes software has served me very well in presenting professional designs to my clients; not as complicated as Auto CADD and without the components I just don't need for my work. The reason I will never change is because of the customer service -- they are incredibly responsive and have always been able to resolve the rare issues I have had with the software, or questions I have about its use. I have found it to be very stable and easy to use. Couple all of these attributes with the online resources, and you will find it is an excellent product.

Comments: A lot to grasp up front. I feel the instruction manual could be improved to provide more detail. Have yet to use the design side because more people relate to the photo image than the plot plan

Dan has been a great asset to me with any problem that may crop up.

Comments: The Earthscapes software is user friendly and allows us to present to our potential customers a professional view of what our design will look like. even before we begin the project.
The only NEGATIVE, would be that the current version we work with doesn't always have the plant selection that we need and it is a little difficult to custom a picture into the library.
One of the biggest strength of the software is the strong customer support, fast, friendly and knowledgeable.
