Virtual Gardening Done Right
Van Nuys, CA June 28, 2004 -- Lack the creative vision necessary to imagine what a fully realized garden would look like before putting spade to soil? Not interested in using the kind of complicated imaging software employed by professional landscape architects? Then get your hands on LANDSCAPE VISION, the consumer solution to home landscape design.
Unlike most landscape design applications on the market today, Landscape Vision allows its users to envision the look of their garden in conjunction with actual images of their home. No CAD drawings, model homes, or 3-D wire frames that require even the most creative individual to stretch his/her imagination to the limits.
Plus, Landscape Vision's database of over 1,000 real plant images (not renderings) allows novice landscape architects to spruce up their home and lawn based on what looks good. Don't have a lawn yet? No problem! Landscape Vision lets you add one by simply clicking your mouse.
The straightforward and cost effective solution to home garden design, Landscape Vision walks users through uploading images of their home (acquired via a scanner or digital camera) for use within the program. A simple drag and drop motion places plant life on the user's lawn, and the program's menu driven resize option allows those plants to be displayed at various sizes. Extensive plant bios provide consumers with the knowledge necessary in determining what vegetation will work best in their respective garden environments. No guesswork required. Help sheets and narrated tutorials are included for those in need of further assistance.
And not only can completed designs be printed and/or emailed, Landscape Vision goes so far as to create an automated shopping list that makes your trip to the local nursery a snap. At $39.99, the Landscape Vision eliminates the guesswork, trial and error, and major expense typically associated with using a professional home garden designer.
