Lands Design

Lands Design is professional landscape design software that features BIM technology. It works as a powerful tool for modelling a 3D landscape project and providing 2D technical drawings of landscape projects from a broad range of scales. Lands Design automatically produces documentation and lists of quantities of plants and other materials.

There are two versions of the software that are available as plug-ins for AutoCAD and Rhino. However, both versions have similar features. Purchasing a license lets you take advantage of both versions.
