There was a brief thread on this subject a while back, asking for
recommended garden design software- I just found the following which might
be of interest- includes info on several programs which might be suitable...
I've just been playing about with a demo of a program called 'Sprout!' by
abracadata software which is the closest I've found to meeting my needs for
garden design software, being specifically oriented towards veggie/edible
gardening rather than ornamental stuff- came on a shareware disc I bought
for £2.00 in a local chainstore- however I then discovered 'save' & 'print'
functions were disabled... Aaargh! Checked out the website to consider
registering & found i'd have to order a copy snailmail-19 dollars, about a
tenner in UK money, reasonable enuf, but post & packing a further 23
dollars- sod that! they can go and whistle! shame tho cos it was a nifty
little program, giving optimum spacings for rows etc, plus ph info, plant
data, planting times, etc, very basic and none of yer '3d walkthrough'
nonsense or other bells & whistles...
Does anybody know of a freeware alternative? or a specific permaculture
oriented design package?
Well you never know....
