What others say

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

For what you get, the program is 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 basically 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 short period of time have mastered the basics and can produce accurate, attractive, and useful plans for clients and landscapers for quoting purposes.”
