This is the start of a long journey for me and hopefully it will end with a good looking garden. Short term objective: create the layout and select the plants. Long term...implement the above, so you will probably see lots of questions coming from me in the months to come

Here is the first: I have finished reading Residential Landscape Architecture by James E Hiss so now I have some good guidelines for proceeding with the design of our site. I am going to use Visio (for a master paln) and Sketchup for 3D simulation and rendering. Can anybody recomend any good Visio stencils and templates for Landscape Design? There is a Plants set of stencils but I am not happy with it all all. I think it should contain more that what it is included

Any help will be much appreciated

  • There is a similar question about what software is best to be used for design. How come that that one was allowed? – MiniMe Jul 10 '16 at 16:27
  • Thanks for the pointer. That question predated the meta post where the policy was established. – Niall C. Jul 10 '16 at 16:33

    I tried to find a way to comment but this looks like the only way. This site is called gardening and landscaping and this question is completely on topic! Allow this guy to show what he is doing! Just the technical aspects of software IS NOT LANDSCAPING!! Just because one purchases a software package does not a LANDSCAPE ARCHITECT MAKE! They are asking pertinent questions on the correct site as far as I know... – stormy Jul 10 '16 at 23:12
