LF : Landscape Design App

Postby DataMan on Tue Feb 24, 2009 5:53 am

At some point here in the US Midwest, winter may actually come to an end. When the permafrost subsides this year, I'd like to re-do a couple of our perimeter beds. Rather than go the route of hand sketched layouts, I'd like to do some real dimensioned drawings of the re-designed beds. I'm looking for any recommendations on drawing packages that have a good supply of landscape stencil/template objects. I currently have installed dia and the OO drawing package. I didn't locate anything close in either of these packages to support landscape design.

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Tx,

Dataman - my wife does landscape design for many clients and I loaded VirtualBox running WindowsXP on LinuxMint with Realtime Landscaping Architect. It seems to run fine and has no problems at all . . .

Maybe Google SketchUp? I didn't run on Linux last time I checked though.

Thanks for the suggestions. A little bit pricey for my one shot project. Will continue checking around to see if I can find a suitable app to run native on Lx. If all else fails, will use my Windows Visio Pro @ work.

Thanks Again,

DataMan,

I don't know if anything here would be of interest to you or not, but it might be worth a look.
