In Frank Waugh’s view, the landscape architect is first and foremost an artist capable of seeing, feeling, and understanding the beauties of the landscape, and capable too of interpreting these beauties to others. Today the professional landscape designer can go mobile in explaining his work to clients with the first professional landscape solution for the iPad – the “PRO Landscape Companion” app. Drafix Software, the leader in professional landscape design software provides “PRO Landscape Companion”, a landscape app for iPad. “PRO Landscape Companion” is the first iPad landscape design app created specifically for professional landscape architects, designers and contractors, providing additional advantages over competitors.

There are numerous types of outdoor landscaping designs—from residences to parks, to commercial developments to schools. It is the mission of the landscape contractor, designer or architect to guide the customer’s modification of the landscape so that he may achieve the greatest possible esthetic satisfaction of the outdoor space. This landscape app allows users to visualize, and then create a design from scratch on the iPad using a photo taken with the tablet’s camera. Users then have the option to transfer the outdoor landscape designs to a computer and finish it in the “PRO Landscape”. On the other hand, if the design has been started in the landscape software it can then be transferred to the iPad to show a visual design to a customer, and make expert changes on the fly.
