I've been using Realtime Landscaping Pro 2018 software for a few months now, and am discovering its limitations. In some ways it is really good, and great value for money. It falls down a bit with creating varying ground levels, but it is also possible that I have not mastered that part yet. But the biggest issue for me is the lack of appropriate 3D models of plants. I find myself customising their 3D models, which is ok to a point, but there are not enough basic model options. Like no customiseable Hebes, no Erysimum 'Bowle's Mauve', not even Cornus alba 'Elegantissima' or 'Spaethii' nor even anything I can customise to them. And the perennial models are not dense enough, and there is not even Aubrieta present. And no types of Lavender in any form in the entire program!
They have many, many 2D "models" - the type that are like cardboard cutouts, but these are just awful to have in a plan for me. I also checked Sketchup for a model of Cornus alba 'Elegantissima' and could only find the same "cardboard cutout" type model.
Does anyone know of a 3D garden design software that does not cost as much as Vectorworks Landmark, but has a genuinely good variety of 3D plant models? There must be something out there!
EDIT: Haang on a minute... Necessity being the mother of invention, I have just discovered I can import models. Just imported a lavender from Sketchup warehouse.
Many thank yous.
