Landscape design requires knowledge of local climate, native plants, and the possibilities for trees, shrubs, and flowers suitable for a client's space. Remembering mature growth characteristics, problem pests, and regular maintenance needs of these plants is hard enough; trying to give your clients an accurate picture of what they can expect this year and years from now, is one of landscape architecture's more difficult tasks. Software design tools can help.  Here are a few of the popular ones.
