COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN
 
Computer Aided Design (CAD) should only ever be viewed as a tool.
 
It has it's uses but it is by no means an essential part of being a garden designer
 
We do not sell or endorse anything with CAD. Our Photoshop course can provide a good introduction to using computer graphics, and you can even use this program for CAD, however it can be a mistake to buy any garden design software before learning to design gardens first. I say this for several reasons....

1. Many skilled garden designers find using CAD to be limiting to the accuracy and creativity of their designs -even the best software is limiting.

2. There are many options for CAD, and new CAD systems emerging all the time. The most appropriate CAD software will depend upon the application. You need to know what type of business you are operating & what services you are providing, before you get the tools to do the job

3. If you buy a system before changing, then spend 2 years studying, it may be out of date before you graduate and are ready to start using it.

One of our affiliates (Garden Design Academy, in France) is a specialist when it comes to CAD. If someone is more strongly focused on CAD, they should consider studying our courses with these people, who also do a CAD course See www.gardendesignacademy.com

If you have questions regards CAD....we suggest you contact Colin at Garden Design Academy in France.
