Editors' Review

+
Despite a few omissions, this program still stands as a handy tool for anyone who plans a garden or landscape from the ground up. The bright, welcoming interface is a snap to understand, and, though you won't find a step-by-step wizard, the animated introduction quickly brings you up to speed.

Operating the program is equally painless. You simply drag and drop shrubs, trees, flowers, buildings, paving, and ponds into a large grid and lay them out as you like. You can change the foliage color and zoom in or out on your garden. However, we wish the program included several templates for houses so you could spatially arrange the garden around it. We also would like the developer to give us a few sample garden layouts.

Still, we think Garden Planner can be useful for a number of folks, whether they're new home owners, landscape architects, or just gardening enthusiasts.

"Very disappointing"

March 13, 2012  |  By Jzooman

 |  Version: Garden Planner 3.0.0.45

Pros

It's simple. Some things, like distance computation, are handy, but they are far overshadowed by the negatives. Fortunately the lesson on poor design software didn't cost much.

Cons

Not intuitive at all. Just drawing a straight line proved to be a challenge - couldn't terminate the line without it disappearing.

Summary

Don't bother with this software. And certainly don't pay for it.
