I wish the packaging or their website had said...2 Posted by: from: on Why didn't it say that this is an add-on to the house design software? Frustrating and a time waster to not have begun at the beginning. Buy the home design package first.

Cheap for a reason1 Posted by: from: on I purchased this for my landscaping business and it will not open on my computer. I keep getting an error. I will be bringing it back to best buy along with my computer to see what the issue is as it states it is compatible with my operating system. I'm hoping we can fix it because it looks like a really neat program.

software wouldn't install1 Posted by: from: on Purchased for a project..but it would not install. When I tried to return it they refused because it had been opened to install. Ended up having to purchase another program somewhere else and lost 25.00.

its ok2 Posted by: from: Chicago, IL on Pretty complicated to use but you can figure it out with some work. I primarily got it to see how plants would look on my landscaping but the view is all computer generated and all the plants look close to the same. There are no actual photos of the plants.

Can't enter numbers; way too complex1 Posted by: from: Pittsburgh on Can't enter dimensions directly; Back arrows don't work; Impossible to acutally set up a diagram for an exiting house. Help system no good - I tried "Enter dimension" and it told me I had to drag and drop. Looks like it was designed for an iPAD or a device without number entry. Has standard home layouts; No way to search them (2.6 story, 3400 SqFt, ). You have to look at each 1 and there aren't very many. Can't find a plant by name. .....

Not worth the money.1 Posted by: from: Norwalk, ct on Does not do what it says and tech support impossible. had problems loading. Went with a more expensive better program that lives up to its claims. Do not waste time or money

Ok landscape program for home use3 Posted by: from: Latrobe PA on Tutorials could provide a little more information, however, this program is fairly easy to use once you play around with it and learn how to use it. The price was right as I bought it at half price. I did have a problem getting the program to run on windows 8. Sent an email to punch and they sent me a patch to download. Works great now. The topography tools are a little tough to work with if you have a lot of hills and slopes as I do. If your property is flat or you have only a few hills and slopes, you should have no problems. All in all, it is an ok program for home use.

does not run on a laptop, requires a videocard1 Posted by: from: Stafford VA on This program will not run on my laptop. It requires a video card or game controller that is on my desktop. I wanted to use it on my laptop but can not.

nice tool for generating ideas3 Posted by: from: minneapolis on We bought it to play with home and garden ideas and it's perfect for that. We can try out variations on our schemes and talk about them. My 9 year old likes to play with it and is having fun learning to think in 3-D, plan out ideas, consider steps in a process (both CAD drawing and construction).
