Garden and Landscape Planning Tool

A few posts down (See Small Landscape Tree) I posted some pictures using a cool software tool to help design my back yard. There seemed to be some interest so I thought I'd share with everyone... =) I am in no way affiliated with these folks, I just happen to find their product useful and thought you might too. If you'd like to see what I'm talkin about http://www.ideaspectrum.com/ I received their basic Realtime Landscaping Photo software two years ago for Christmas. I've had a lot of fun with it and used it to design a few spaces. You can take a picture of your house or where ever you want to design and add in features or you can create a world from scratch... My favorite feature is the "walk-through" where it "activates" your design and you can hear little birdie noises and wind and all the plants sway like there's a breeze. Aaaaah. Anyway here's my back yard to be (fingers crossed!)... Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket
