The ski resort of Bansko, where we were based, has seen a lot of development over the last decade, but all that has ground to a halt now and apartment blocks stand unfinished and goats were grazing the vacant plots outside our apartment.

Landscape Design Software Query

Morning All,
I wonder if anyone could advise on which is the best landscape/garden design software in their opinion - I need to move into this area to help customers visualise what their gardens will look like after our transformation work but not sure which software to go for.

Your opinions would be greatly valued.
