Any advice given here is general in nature and is not necessarily valid for your given area. If in doubt check with your local codes enforcement department for what is required when doing electrical, plumbing or structural work on your house. Permits may or may not be required in your area and home owners may not be able to DIY some tasks. I have no way of knowing if you have the skills needed to complete the tasks you are asking about, when in doubt seek professional assistance.

My advice may be worth exactly what you pay me for it. :-) For the record I did not stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Pretty much anywhere on the web GS. Landscaping topics are always hot and information is easy to find. Your local home improvement store might be able to help you in this regard as well.

This might help, although it's primarily oriented toward garden planning:

Another possibility:

http://download.gardeningenthu...LEy7cCFZKk4AodnjcAVw

I don't know if these have the specific features you want; I think you'd have to download them to find out.

Did you try Office Depot or Office Max? They typically have some various design programs. And a local gardening supplier (not the big box kind but a real garden store) might have some programs. Barnes & Noble or some small specialty bookstores might have programs as well.

See the fifth row for two programs.

You could also Google "landscaping software".

The ESL comment was directed at liberato and his non-sense spam post.

I never thought of Best Buy but it's worth a try.

I've seen some of the professional software programs used on TV programs, including the DIY ones, but I suspect they're probably a lot more expensive than you want to pay. And they may have more options available for a wide variety of potential layouts.

Good luck!
