Moving Towards Computer Landscape Design

If you are a regular follower of this blog, you’re aware of my quest towards designing all of our landscapes with computer aided design.  Triumph, tribulation, excitement, frustration, and stress are just some of the emotions I’ve felt in recent weeks and months as I continue the process of moving my landscape design and installation business to the digital age.  This past weekend, I was finally able to color a landscape design that we are currently installing.   It took multiple attempts to get everything just right in the design before I was successful at a fully colored landscape design in the color software. The first couple attempts were at least partially successful.  Plants were colored the first couple of times.  The hardscape was colored the next couple of times yet it took me awhile to pull it all together.  Overall, I am really happy with the look and feel of the color rendering.  If you think about it, having a software program color a landscape design with a click of a button is pretty amazing.  Here is my first successful attempt at a color rendered landscape design.
