Companies that provide services for landscape design and care utilize landscape design software to manage and optimize design visualizations and activities specific to their industry. In addition, the software significantly streamlines the responsibilities of landscape architects and designers. Landscape design solutions decrease the number of manhours previously spent on surveying land, drafting up architectural designs, and collaborating with relevant parties.
This type of software is used by landscape professionals to plan the development and design of such landscape elements as lawn care, gardening, or tree management for residential, commercial, and public spaces. Project managers can also use landscape design software to create quotes and estimates for landscaping services prior to collaborating with contractors or DIY homeowners. Advanced solutions provide features for, or integrations with, tools that facilitate drawing, CAD, simulations, and even drone mapping.
While basic estimating features are provided, landscape design solutions usually integrate with third-party accounting or billing solutions. Since not all solutions provide customer management features, they often offer integration with CRM solutions as well.
