LANDWorksCAD blurs the line between being technically advanced and artistically creative as well as being the easiest-to-master professional design software.

LANDWorksCAD is America’s fastest growing professional landscape design software, suitable for use anywhere in the world. 

Art and technology

Create aesthetically beautiful drawings that are digitally accurate, without needing to be an engineer or IT guru. Enjoy an integrated mix of technical drafting and creative artistic license. No two designers are the same, so why not create drawings that express your own unique style. You decide how your drawings look, not the software. You can even use your own hand-drawn plant images.

There’s virtually no limit to how creative you c

Get good fast

Even if you’ve never used CAD software before, you’ll be up and running in just days, not weeks or months. Enrol in the easy-to-follow, step-by-step course and learn all you need to know to be confidently producing drawings in your business.

This certificate course is based on the same courses taught in landscape design focused universities and colleges around the world.

And whilst you’re completing the course you get full support from our dedicated team. Your success with our software is as important to us as it is to you.


Compatibility Assurance

Work alongside other architects, surveyors, town planners and engineers. Import, edit and share files directly with your associates using industry standard file formats such as AutoCAD® DWG, DXF, CAD, PDF converted to an image, JPG, BMP and PNG. Design with Google Maps®, SixMaps®, Near Maps® or any aerial photo or scanned image. Just insert, scale to real size and trace over. Easy. Send your finished drawings directly to your client as a PDF, CAD or image file, or straight to your printer or print shop. No extra tools required.

You’ll be able to directly use the CAD drawings they provide. Just edit out the parts you don’t need and keep the rest. No need to redraw.

Some more unique features we

think you’ll love

Sketch and Stretch

Sketch your design to approximate locations and later stretch accurately to the desired positions. Everything associated will update automatically, saving hours of rework time. LANDWorksCAD provides the most flexible design environment.

Magic Eraser

Powerful editing of lines is made possible by the proprietary Magic Eraser™ function. Just press Alt + drag your cursor to trim and delete.


Swap one for another. Labels, schedules, legends and the appearance are updated on your command. Find and replace an entire drawing, a select group or one at a a time. Control is all yours.


Total Tally BOM

Avoid costly errors – Let LANDWorksCAD count the plants and insert accurate schedules and legends. It knows which plants are proposed and which are existing too! Generate an Excel report for getting competitive quotes from your nursery suppliers.

Do It All

Create sketch plans, concept plans, presentation plans, planting plans, construction details, plant schedules, contour plans, irrigation plans, lighting plans, sections, elevations, presentations, maintenance plans and more.

Region Planting

Cover large areas of your site with plants in a single click. Arrange them in rows, patterns, randomly distributed or as ground cover. If you don’t like what you see, just select the region and change the entire area in one go. It’s fast and easy.

Good Measure

Measurement tools assist in costing and calculating job requirements with confidence. Areas, lengths, angles and quantities straight from the drawing, even from complex difficult to estimate shapes. 

Concept to Construction

Only draw once. Concept plans become planting plans and planting plans become construction documents without the need to redraw – One drawing simply references the other. Even variations of the same design can all happen in the same file.


True Scale

Work directly over aerial maps and photographs. Pick two points and enter the real world distance between them to scale anything to true size. Ensures your work is always accurate at any scale.

Smart Parts

From plant symbols to entire garden beds, to construction details and blocks of text – save anything to your library for future use.  Edit library items and they’ll update in every drawing or only the active one – you choose.

File Sharing

Exchange drawings with your associates in common file formats such as native .CAD, .DXF or .DWG and if they don’t have CAD you can export to PDF or give them a free LANDWorksCAD viewer to open, mark-up and print your drawings.


Arborist Ready

Add ArborCAD™ companion software designed especially for arborists at any time. A perfect combination for the multi-disciplinary office.

How is LANDWorksCAD different?

LANDWorksCAD is simply better, faster and more fun to use than traditional CAD. It has purpose-built tools for professional landscape design as well as all the regular CAD tools. It is faster to use and easier to master. It is available as a perpetual license or as a subscription license. It runs on Mac and Windows and it has features and benefits that no other landscape design software offers that save you time and produce more visually appealing drawings.

Can I use LANDWorksCAD on Mac and Windows?

Absolutely. Both MAC and Windows are fully supported natively so you don't have to install any special software. It operates and looks the same in both environments too. You can also swap CAD files from one machine to another so you can have both Mac and Windows in the same office.

How does upgrading work?

When you purchase your license you will be given the latest version.

If you purchased a subscription license you will get free upgrades as they are released.

If you purchased a perpetual license you can buy upgrades whenever you choose. And If you are on annual Premium Support then your upgrades are included free.

Do I need to buy the software to do the training course?

No. The course includes a full version of the software running in ‘Demo’ mode. Demo mode has no time limit but will only allow you save relatively simple drawings.

How long does it take to get the software?

Once your order is processed you’ll receive an email with a direct link to download and install the software. It takes only a few hours from confirmation of payment. If you require assistance installing and setting up the software we provide this as a free service.

Is LANDWorksCAD suitable for my location?

 Whilst US standards are inherent in the software, LANDWorksCAD caters for every place on the planet. Metric and Imperial units, US, ANSI, ISO paper sizes and whole and fractional scales are all a simple click of the mouse.

A huge plant database of more than 2500+ plants is supplied out-of-the-box and you can add your own regional plants from your own list straight into LANDWorksCAD’s plant database. Just paste them in.

Can I use my own symbols?

Absolutely. LANDWorksCAD lets you create your own symbols so you will always have a drawing that is undeniably yours. You can even take a photo of your hand drawn symbols to use in concert with the CAD symbols supplied. 

Can I do 3D?

Yes, you can either do your 3D work (limited) directly in LANDWorksCAD itself or you can work alongside other 3D software such as SketchUp, Lumion or ArchLine ‘Live’. You’ll also be able to directly link your LANDWorksCAD 2D with SketchUp 3D to instantly replace 2D plants with 3D ones in SketchUp. You can also include 3D images from any 3D source into your LANDWorksCAD drawings. 

What Others Are Saying
