Purpose Built for Professional Landscapers

LANDWorksCAD Pro is an easy-to-use professional level software specifically created for landscapers needs. It is not an engineering software for computer guru's and masterminds.

Most landscapers have avoided CAD because traditional CAD software was too difficult, too basic, too ugly or too expensive? Look no further, LANDWorksCAD is designed with you in mind.

Get Supported

If you feel you want extra help choose full expert technical annual support with the support subscription plan for total peace of mind. We can assist you with practically any question.

Learn FAST

You can now learn the software online fast with our new CAD Level 1 certificate training course. Complete the course at your own pace in the comfort of you home or office. You can even go back over what you've learned to refresh your memory. And when you have mastered the 2D you can progress seamlessly to 3D modelling.


When you buy LANDWorksCAD you don't need AutoCAD. LANDWorksCAD is a complete program in its own right. It has all the tools you expect in a professional CAD program and will work with files created in other CAD software.

LANDWorksCAD is also easier to learn and use and is significantly less expensive too!

Rosewood Horticultural Services


You can use LANDWorksCAD-Pro to create sketch plans, 3D perspectives, sections, concept plans, planting plans, hard works plans, construction details, plant schedules, contour plans, irrigation plans, lighting plans, elevations, presentations and more.

Excel Database Driven

Keeping it so simple (KISS), LANDWorksCAD's extensive plant database is simply an excel spreadsheet file! This means you can edit and create your own plant list to suit the choice and trends specific to your preferences and plants in your area. You are not locked in to plants from any one region or continent.

Professionals Anywhere

LANDWorksCAD is ideal for user from any location anywhere in the world. The system operates in both Imperial and Metric units and is supplied with a huge plant database that can be edited and added to with ease.

This software can be used in North America, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Canada, Europe, Russia, India, China, Japan.... anywhere.

LANDWorks is compatible with files created with AutoCAD and many other software programs allowing you to share your designs with architects, town planners, surveyors and public authorities. You can open and edit their files or even scan and accurately scale existing paper based drawings ready to start your design.

Head Start

Scanned drawings can be imported into LANDWorksCAD where they can be accurately rescaled and used as an underlay for your designs. Ideal too for aerial photographs, Google Earth images and site plan information.

Image Conscious

Digital or scanned photographs and other bitmap images can be incorporated into your drawings allowing for complex logo's and graphic illustrations of the plants and surrounds that relate to your design. Let natures own imagery paint a picture for you and your clients to appreciate.

Get Automated

Click on a plant or feature and LANDWorksCAD will give you the correctly named label (call-out) to place just where you want and in the style you choose. Multiple plants are also counted and quantities added to the label if desired.

Accurate Count and Legend

One more click and let LANDWorksCAD count all the plants and place an accurate plant schedule and legend in your drawing. It knows which plants are proposed and which are existing too!

Good Measure

Instant, accurate measurement tools assist in costing and calculating job requirements with confidence. Calculate areas, lengths, angles and quantities straight off the drawing, even around complex curves.

Sue Beveridge, Echuca Moama Garden and Landscape Design


Locating end points, mid-points, distances, intersections and important key locations are achieved very intelligently without keyboard commands or obscure mouse movements. Makes creating your drawings accurate and fast.

LANDWorksCAD even has a tool for measuring the position of two offsets... so you can place a tree for instance, by telling the system how far from the fence and from the side of the building.

Sketch and Stretch™ Technology

Changes to your design are made easier by LANDWorksCAD's Sketch and Stretch™ technology. Items can be roughed in and later stretched to the desired position and everything attached updates automatically.

The unlimited undo and redo allows you to be quite carefree as you work, secure in the knowledge that you can go back to any stage, not just to the last function or two.

Instant Changes

If there was just one feature that made you buy LANDWorksCAD today it would be this... Make sweeping changes to your design without having to redraw. You can even 'switch' between a basic concept appearance and a final detailed look for your plants with one click.

Chop and Swap™

Adding to the ease of making changes is LANDWorksCAD's unique ability to find all the species of one plant and swap it for another in a jiffy, and the labels, schedules, legends and appearance of your planting is updated immediately on your command.

Magic Eraser™

Powerful editing of lines is made possible by the proprietary Magic Eraser function. Just press Alt+drag your cursor to trim, delete, or break lines of any type.

LANDWorksCAD v6 New Features

LANDWorksCAD Plant Database Loads Up To 70% Faster

Up to 70% faster loading of Plant database

No waiting. Now get near instant access to your plant list with almost no wait time. Select from the Insert Plant dialog in an instant.

Super-easy and super-fast search filter

Choose your desired search field such as 'common name' and start typing your search for your desired plant. The selectable plant list automatically updates as you type, filtering your choices for really quick and easy plant selection.

LANDWorksCAD Instant Search

LANDWorksCAD Plant Palettes

Personalized Plant Palettes

Just like an artist with his choice of media you can now create and recall your own named palette of plants to select from, rather than trawl through every plant in your database. Use plants from a previous job, or ones that suit your specific criteria such as only those that are allowed in specific region. Use your horticultural knowledge to build new plant palettes over time and recall them as needed.

Visual Database Editing

Woohoo! No more guessing which CAD or Image file to use when you are building or editing your database. Now you can visually see and select the figure or bitmap to use for each plant from a pictorial catalogue

LANDWorksCAD Visual Database Editing

LANDWorksCAD Mass Planting

Mass Planting

Version 6 lets you plant out entire regions with just a few clicks. It uses actual plant figures or just a hatch pattern to represent them; LANDWorksCAD v6 knows what plants are in the region and treats them as fully editable groupings of plants. Set out your Mass Planting in rows and columns or offset patterns and even add a randomness factor to generate natural distribution or just to make it look less formal.

Ground Cover

Not only can you do mass planting of individual species, you can now apply ground cover species to areas of your design and have those areas included in your labelling, scheduling and quantity take-offs. Double click on an area and a dialog will tell you what plant, how many and what area, easy.

LANDWorksCAD Ground Cover

LANDWorksCAD Super Flexible Labelling

Super Flexible Labelling

The most flexible labelling system is now in your hands. Set the font style and label style including straight and curved leaders, single and multiple leaders, single or double leader elbows, show container size and even underline your text.

LANDWorksCAD v6 shows you what your label will look like BEFORE you place it in your drawing and more importantly labels automatically update as changes are made in your drawing.

The enhanced Auto Labelling tool now lets you choose where the text goes relative to the Plant's centre and with all label types you now get to see what your labels will look like before you place them.

In Concept Planting you can edit the headings and descriptions and the labels know which plants are the same and what has and hasnít been labelled. Very clever and easy to use.

Fully Customise your Plant Schedules

LANDWorksCAD v6 lets you create Customised Schedules Types with your desired display columns as well as different text and heading styles and sizes. Save each of the combinations with a different name for future use. V6 gives you more logical sizing options and haloing of heading text. Fully export the schedule data to an Excel file for use in other applications such as costing.

LANDWorksCAD Plant Schedules

LANDWorksCAD Shadows

Beautiful Automated Shadows

Add instant depth and artistry to your plans with the completely new instant shadow tool. Uniquely choose from a range of supplied shadow styles and shapes or create your own. We have pre-set v6 with the most commonly used shadow shape (half-moon) but you can assign any shape to each plant as desired.

Set the location of the Sun to get the correct shadow angle for your design or just rotate the shadow settings with your mouse for the best visual effect in your drawing.

BONUS Exclusively for
LANDWorksCAD Stand-Alone Users: Enhanced ToolBox

If you use LANDWorksCAD stand-alone version (the one based on RealCAD) and NOT the LANDWorksCAD for AutoCAD or BricsCAD you will greatly appreciate the Enhanced Toolbox.

Add White-Out to your drawings to cover unwanted areas without deleting any entities. Use the White-Out tool to mask a bitmap or just remove the overlapping detail of a group of trees.

Have you ever inserted a plane, point to point only to find you missed a corner? No problem. Now just Add a new vertex to the existing Plane and drag it to where you want. No need to delete and re-insert.

Ever make a mistake half way through inserting a plane? Again no problem, simply move the vertex to a new location or delete an unwanted vertex from your plane. Point to point planes can now be edited like sheets of elastic. Really cool.
