Default Garden designing software?

Hey folks.

I'm new here, so if i'm breaking a rule or something, excuse me.

My stepfather designs gardens. I don't know the exact english term for
what he does, but he basically makes your backyard nicer, enhancing it
with flowers, ponds, wooden installations, etc.

He asked me if i could find a software that would allow him to virtually
create a preview of what his clients are requesting. Is there a software
that does something like that?

Thanks in advance!

It all depends upon how you want it to look.

I would recommend using an HTML designer. HTML is
just about the most universal language around and even
Excel, Word, PowerPoint, Internet Explorer, Explorer,
NetScape can read HTML if it's properly formatted
properly displayed.

Take a look at http://www.csszengarden.com/ for some
really nice pleasant HTML/CSS layouts.

I recommend staying away from Adobe Acrobat. While
it offers a little more protection against people stealing
it is bulky, dependent upon Adobe's proprietary formats,
and it lacks a bulk of functionality that can be achieved
with an inlined framed HTML book. Keeping things
simple, using proper CSS and some minor javascript,
you can create the most eloquent software around.

It all depends upon you learning HTML, CSS and some
javascript though.

Being that you are using a ColdFusion name, I'll assume
that you are familiar with client side scripting.

Just my own personal opinions and experience. Hope it
helps.

In the UK at least, there have been many Garden Design programs in the last
ten years. Most have ended up on the free cover CDs of Computer Magazines. I
would look for them there.
