KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Drafix Software, a provider of professional landscape design software, has a new release of its PRO Landscape design software.

The new PRO Landscape version 17 includes new features and enhancements that allow landscape designers, contractors, architects and garden centers to quickly create designs and to help them communicate their designs to potential clients, thus winning more bids.

“The new version 17 strengthens the premise that PRO Landscape is the industry standard when it comes to landscape design software,” says Pete Lord, president of Drafix Software. “This is just another step in the evolution of the easiest-to-learn and easiest-to-use landscape design software on the market today.”

The new release of PRO Landscape version 17 contains a number of new features that will enhance the design tools available. Some of those new features include:

New Cloning Tools
“In the past few years we’ve seen an increase in the number of design projects our customers are doing that require the removal of existing landscaping,” says Lord. “To better help our customers with these renovation projects we’ve added new tools to help users remove existing landscapes from their photo imaging projects.”

EZScape Tools
This new toolbar puts all the commonly used tools in a single location making it even easier to get started, while increasing the users’ productivity.
