Lands Design is a professional software for landscape design with BIM technology. It lets you develop 2D drawings and 3D technical models of the project while easily switching between 2D and 3D with just one click. By leveraging BIM technology, Lands Design automatically generates quantity takeoff lists of plants and other materials and lets you collaborate easily with other architectural and civil engineering software supported by Autodesk® AutoCAD®.
Lands Design has a fast and intuitive user interface that lets users learn quickly. It includes more than 80 specific commands to extend AutoCAD capabilities.
Main features that streamline the CAD design processes in Lands Design include:

- Plant database with more than 2000 plants totally customizable with the Lands Design ¨plant editor¨.which lets you produce a new species or modify the characteristics and the 3D model of an existing one.
- Documentation tools for preparing technical plans such as dimension plan, planting layout plan, and irrigation plan, producing lists, labels, etc.
