After spending some time scratching my different ideas on paper I decided it was time to make them look more professional for HOA and county approval. After searching around Realtime Landscape Pro had good reviews so I spent the $100 which if it did all it claims is a fantastic price. I have to say that is software is incredible, I started with laying out the house and current hardscape so that I would have a good starting point to lay on the proposed changes. This software is fairly easy to use, the help topics really open up the possibilities once you are comfortable to get very detailed. I have tried some other software in the past and their library of plants and add one always fell short, it is not the case this time. Just thought I would pass this along for others looking for a professional looking software reasonably priced.
