Typical landscape design created with gCADPlus

YouTube movie This movie highlights the use of gCADPlus to provide a detailed set of drawings for a childcare center.  A design for the spaces around an outdoor play area for children is presented on an A0 sheet. Photos of species used in the design, a plant schedule, and magnified views of portions of the design are shown on the layout sheet.

Tip: The images shown on a layout sheet are taken from SppDb, a plant database application that’s designed to work with gCADPlus. Buy gCADPlus and get a free copy of SppDb.

What others say

“Botanica Garden Styling is a boutique landscape architecture business in Melbourne. In the past, plans were hand-drawn, and CAD work was outsourced when required … until we discovered gCADPlus.  Admittedly, we were slightly nervous about picking up this new skill but having a landscape design software program that is specifically tailored for garden design work is fantastic. 

For what you get, the program is of excellent value and the support is second to none.  I regularly contact Keith with queries and in no time at all he has created a video and put it on Facebook for all of us to learn from.  The tutorials are excellent, and we have gone from no knowledge of drawing or design programs to star pupils.  We probably haven’t touched the sides of what the program offers, but within quite a brief period have mastered the basics and can produce accurate, attractive, and useful plans for clients and landscapers for quoting purposes.”

“​For the solo garden designer or small landscape design-build firm like mine, no other landscape design package offers so many features in such a solid package for such a small cost. For small companies like ours, spending $2,000+ on design software doesn’t make sense, especially when that software comes with additional yearly or monthly maintenance fees that add hundreds of dollars more per year to that cost.

I have used gCADPlus since 2016. It has been a trusted and reliable partner to my landscape design business from day one. Simple to use with great support tools available. Management has equally impressed me with a high level of support and super quick response to any inquiry over the years. Highly recommended.  Theo A
