App allows industry professionals to create visual designs and price quotes via tablet.

| August 1, 2014

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – PRO Landscape has unveiled the first standalone landscape design and bidding app built specifically for landscape professionals.

The PRO Landscape Contractor app lets you create visual designs and price quotes on your iPad or Android tablet. Simply take a picture with your tablet, drag and drop plants, add in mulch, grass, hardscapes, statuary and much more.

With PRO Landscape Contractor it’s easy to create designs on-site, even with the customer watching.

“We are proud to continue to provide the best landscape design solutions with the release of our first standalone landscape tablet app for professionals. We’ve had great success and feedback from our PRO Landscape Companion app but we’ve had numerous requests  from landscape contractors and garden centers for a stand-alone app. We are excited to release PRO Landscape Contractor to fill that need,” said Pete Lord, president of Drafix Software.

Key features in the PRO Landscape Contractor app include:

Create visual designs that sell – Create visual designs starting with a photo of your customer’s house of building. Drag and drop plants, hardscapes, and more to create visual designs customers will easily understand. Easily create custom shapes for areas such as grass, mulch and pavers. A cutout tool lets you cover up (clone) the existing landscaping on your renovation projects. Add the before picture to show a “before & after” design.

Large image library
– Online access to the complete PRO Landscape library of more than 11,000 high quality photos on our cloud-based server. Downloaded images can be
 saved to your local favorites. Set your climate zone to just show plants for your zone(s). Search the image library by common or botanical name.

Create price quotes for your projects
– Create instant proposals right in the app using your own prices. Adjust prices, sizes and quantity to finalize the quote. Save prices for use in your next design.

Share your designs – Email your designs right to your customers, or post on your favorite social media site such as Facebook or Twitter. Print, save as PDF, or email your designs and quotes to your customers. PRO Landscape Contractor for iPad can be found in the Apple App Store here.

PRO Landscape Contractor for Android will be available this fall. PRO Landscape Contractor is free to download and try.

To access the full image library users can subscribe by the month or year.
