GardenSketch is design software which can help plan and lay out a garden or landscape, enabling you to visualize a garden space before any plants are purchased.

GardenSketch has specialized drawing tools to make designing landscapes easy. The existing landscape can be easily entered by incorporating aerial or satellite photos. GardenSketch helps you to choose suitable plants with its search capability. It also makes buying plants and mulch easy, by computing the number of plants and/or amount of mulch required for an area.

Gardensketch is currently in beta, and we are very open to suggestions which would more...

Not intuitive enough.

You need to add tools such as building walls to represent home walls.

There are far better products out there than this one.

The screen is so small.

A promising idea - but the interface is far from intuitive and for me the Help did not work so I was unable to design anything! There seems to be no instructional material on the developer's site either.

Is there an area that you found especially unintuitive? I'd like to improve the the documentation and will be willing to change the interface if it's giving people problems.

I tried to start a project by first filling areas of lawn but could not work out how to do this. I assumed the rectangle tool should be involved but had no success. And as I said the Help system did not function. I would certainly encourage you to provide more comprehensive documentation.

I know it's beta but it should at least run. When launched it froze my Mac. Force quit wouldn't work. Finally able to shut down by depressing the main power button for several seconds, which I really hate to do.

Previous versions were easier to use and had better looking results. This version is unusable to me.

A very appropriate title for a very appropriate software. If you are tired of wasting money in purchasing plants on the spur of the moment then coming home trying to figure out where to put it, and wasting money on expensive landscaping software then this program is for you! Although it is not as thorough as the big money programs out there, you can't beat the price of GardenSketch. It may very well save you money from frivolous spending and killing plants due to transplanting. Yes, true confession: I've done it many times...
They do request a donation for future development. Awesome.

Great start! The author was quick to fix the problem of not running. I really like the references. Great for a gardener. Software like this is FREE on the Mac? Geez, not on Windows! The same program kind of program by the Burpee seed company is expensive.

For some reason I cannot get it to launch on my G5 PPC. Love to try it though.

I apologize for the mistake, and have uploaded a new version which should correct the problem. Could you please repeat the download?
