Description
Designing landscapes with sustainability in mind is no longer a matter of preference but one of meeting jurisdictional requirements. Landscape design professionals can expect Computer Aided Design (CAD) software to make their current design workflows easier and help meet the new obligations in water efficient site design. Explore how CAD applications can help create beautiful landscapes that maximize water efficiency by incorporating the water needs of proposed plants, designing hydrozones for irrigation, and calculating water budgets.
