    You want your home exterior to inspire awe, and no one knows your aesthetic quite as well as you do. It's time to start creating the home you've always dreamed about. Whether you're a professional landscape architect, an aspiring outdoor designer or a proud home owner, Home Designer Landscape & Deck 2014 provides the tools you need to start building a welcoming outdoor living space. Plan your design projects thoroughly before you begin building to save both time and money. Home Designer offers more than 40 online tutorials to help you through each step of the design process to help you successfully create the outdoor space of your dreams.

    Plan your outdoor design projects with ease using the professional tools and templates included in Home Designer Landscape & Deck 2014. Receive step-by-step guidance through many types of outdoor projects by accessing over 40 online tutorial videos. Design inviting landscapes by adding plants, ponds, streams, pools and more, then virtually view your landscape, garden, deck, patio, pool or other outdoor design in either 2D or 3D. Select from more than 3,600 realistic plants, trees and shrubs or import pictures of your own plants, all with a simple point and click, and locate the best plants for your yard based on factors such as bloom time, water and sun needs, height information, plant type and sub-type, color, deer resistance and more with Plant Chooser. Got bigger dreams? Move to building as you discover a range of deck and patio tools. Design single- or multi-level decks in a variety of styles, including free-standing, tiered and post-and-beam, or plan more advanced projects using automatic deck framing tools with advanced deck framing. Choose from an assortment of patio materials, from the classic concrete slab style to a more modern slate, tile or stone design. Insert stairs, ramps, roofs, railings and covered patios to your project, or add details such as borders, planking direction, overhang and planking gap using a spread of automatic design tools. Ensure that your deck or patio space is large enough to suit your needs by adding tables, chairs, swing sets and more, changing the size and color of each object as desired — or import photos of your own furniture for more accurate planning. Apply colors and materials to your outdoor design using Material Painter, and adjust your design for flat, irregular shaped or sloped lots using Automatic Build Terrain and Terrain Perimeter tools. When you're finished creating the perfect outdoor design, you can create a Virtual Tour of your project to show your client, friends or family.
