Software Tips

Horticulture and landscape architecture software

Software for gardening and landscaping is as diverse as gardening or landscaping itself. Landscapers design parks as well as small gardens, create swimming ponds or tend trees, provide green roofs and facades and roadside greenery or maintain gardens, mow lawns, etc. Gardeners also produce vegetables, plants for balconies and gardens, run tree nurseries and sell not only services such as garden design, but also the appropriate plants.

The software for a market gardening business will include different functions and focuses than, for example, software for landscaping businesses with extensive equipment parks or for cemetery nurseries. For example, a market gardening business must take into account cultivation planning, marketing (both direct marketing in its own store and sales to resellers), accounting and cash register as well as, for example, label printing, etc.

A gardening and ladscaping company will focus on digitalization in areas such as the creation of calculations, measurements, offers, management of the equipment and vehicle fleet, digital and, above all, mobile time recording, and so on.

Areas for digitization

Digitization options are also available through automation on the construction site and at the customer's premises. Various options are available here depending on the size and scope of the project.

An increasingly important aspect is the 3D rendering of gardens, landscapes and environments. 3D rendering can be used very well to offer customers something new and innovative. Providers of landscaping software therefore also rely on 3D and building material modeling functions.

The plant encyclopedia

An important and almost indispensable component of a software solution for gardening and landscaping is a plant lexicon. A plant encyclopedia usually includes data on trees and shrubs, fruit trees, perennials, grasses and ferns. Such a plant encyclopedia contains information on the use of the plants. Plant planning can be easily done with the help of the encyclopedia. As a rule, the encyclopedia can be searched according to various criteria. Botanical characteristics are listed as well as the requirements of the plants for soil conditions, light / shade, suitability and use.
