"It has been great discovering what Realtime Landscaping Architect can do to create realistic plans. It is far better than anything I've used before!" - Karen Faulkner, Botanica Atlanta landscape design.
Design Landscape Plans Design houses, decks, fencing, yards, gardens, swimming pools, water features, and much more with easy-to-use tools. Give your plans a hand-drawn look using a wide variety of plant symbols and color washes. Add plant labels automatically using the wizard, and add a plant legend with just a few mouse clicks. Design irrigation systems, planting details, and other CAD drawings with accurate size and scale. Includes drawing templates for sheet sizes A0-A4, and custom sizes are also supported. An extensive library of symbols is included, and you can create your own using the wizard.

Simultaneous 2D and 3D Design As you design your landscape, the 2D and 3D views are updated automatically. Freely switch between views as needed. Design houses, decks, and other objects in 2D, and then switch to 3D to set their elevation. Most tools can be used in either view. Sample 2D/3D design
Import Digital Photographs Import a digital photograph of your client's house and design the landscape. Present before-and-after views to help your client visualize your landscaping ideas. A powerful picture editor is included so you can touch-up photos, edit imported pictures, and even create custom plant varieties. Sample photo landscape.
Advanced 3D Visualization Realtime Landscaping Architect includes the latest advances in 3D graphics technology. Instead of taking minutes or even hours to render a single image, you can freely walk around your landscape designs in real-time 3D. Advanced rendering features include soft shadows, accurate lighting, flowing water, and more. More features
