This Gallery has many of the 3-D designs I prepared for clients over a period of many years. When looking at a 2-D design on paper (which shows length and width of the design components) designers should be able to visualize the 3-D aspect of the design. I have found that many of my clients can not visualize the 3-D aspect because they don't have the training and/or ability to see the layout of a design as though they were walking through it.

Many years ago I started using an inexpensive design imaging software that's by no means perfect in its presentation of the 3-D image, but it does get the idea across. I realized that I'm not as skilled as others at rendering these kinds of designs; yet, I feel I have improved my skills over the years. Most of my clients have been very pleased to see a 3-dimensional presentation of what the design will look like when installed.

There are more expensive programs, but I needed something that would deliver a finished design as quickly as possible; therefore, I continued to use this program. It allowed me to add plant material as well as other objects to the program database; thereby increasing my ability to show a wide variety of plants and features such as new paving, ponds, etc.

If you find something of interest for your own garden and would like to know more about the design, email me and I will try to help you.
