"Land F/X actually helps make work FUN! The ease with which I am able to lay out plants and seamlessly change them later if needed, to layout irrigation heads quickly/accurately and size pipe with the touch of a keystroke, plus the dynamic legends keeping track of everything are just small but powerful examples of why I personally think it is one of the best CAD programs ever created. I highly recommend it to any landscape designer, contractor or landscape architect and do so whenever I can.
"Land F/X also offers F/X CAD, a powerful but smaller version of AutoCADD that has all the features I've ever needed. Its extremely competitive price point made it easy to purchase, and it was integral in me setting up my home-based small business. Keep up the good work!"
Michael P. Scheele
"I just wanted to write a quick note letting you know how much time and money F/X CAD has saved (MSP) me. The smooth transition from using Land F/X plug-in with Civil 3D to F/X CAD has been working great. There have been no more fatal errors, no computer lagging or churning slowly. I have not had any issues with opening other drawings, being able to read other drawings or saving them. The only thing that I miss from Civil 3D is the “MAPINSERT” when working with aerials; other than that, I am 100% pleased with the performance. And as always, technical service is top notch when needed. Thank you, Land F/X and F/X CAD!"
McGill Smith Punshon (MSP)
"I began using Land F/X software during my undergraduate program at Cal Poly State University, San Luis Obispo, and have ever since been sold on a great product. When entering the working world, I insisted that my employer purchase F/X CAD because of the wide range of capabilities and ease of use. Thus far I have not been disappointed, and though I learn new things every day about how to use the software more efficiently, it is very intuitive and easy to use from the get go.
"I would highly recommend this product for another great reason: customer service. Between the online webinars and the helpful staff, I can easily figure out any issues that arise from my use of this product. Their customer care is second to none, along with the product they sell and service."
Confidence Landscaping, Inc.
"I have been using F/X CAD for several years now, and I have been very pleased with how well it works. Having the ability to fully customize the software so that I can adjust to each of my clients’ graphic preferences saves me a great deal of time. Also, as a landscape designer I need to spend as little time as possible dealing with technical software issues, so the support Land F/X and their team offers is a great value to me. Whether it is AutoCAD related or has to do with the Land F/X software, they always respond promptly and get me back to work quickly. I would recommend F/X CAD to anyone in the landscape design industry."
"AAA Landscape continues to utilize F/X CAD suite of products, to include landscape and irrigation, for all of our Landscape Architectural design/production needs. F/X CAD is the platform that has allowed our organization to be the most efficient and competitive in a challenging marketplace.
"In addition to the F/X CAD application products, the level of technical support and training provided by Land F/X has continuously elevated our capabilities."
John P. Jacobson
"F/X CAD is the best thing that ever happened to landscape architecture. Since it automates the tasks that are not so fun to do, it allows me to spend more time on creative thoughts rather than counting plants, or doing pressure calculations. Then it enables me to put creative thoughts on paper in the most beautiful way produced with computer-aided drafting. As I say, drawings produced with AutoCAD are crisp and clear and great for construction drawings, but usually they have no ‘soul’ in comparison to a hand-drafted conceptual master plan or a hand colored planting plan. But with F/X CAD’s amazing features to color and shadow a drawing, and even connect it to SketchUp to raise a design into 3D, my words are not true anymore. F/X CAD users can create their own symbols and hatches – and with it, bring an individual touch to any drawing. F/X CAD has enabled art to return into the production of landscape design drawings. Dave and Jeremiah created something incredible, and I don't think I could be still as passionate about landscape architecture without F/X CAD’s aid."
Environmental Planning & Design, Inc.
"After using AutoCAD for more more than 15 years, I started using F/X Cad with Land F/X a year ago. There was almost no learning curve in the change. Since switching to Land F/X and F/X Cad, not only have I noticed a huge increase in productivity, my plans are more accurate and detailed. My favorite feature is the planting; this is HUGE! Having the ability to create a plant palette for each project using an accurate and smart database saves tons of time. On top of that, Land F/X generates planting schedules and counts with just a few clicks. What used to take hours and hours, now takes minutes. The best thing about Land F/X is the amount of time saved."
"It's rare that I can say that a project has changed my life, but Land F/X does it on a daily basis. After working with Land F/X, going back to AutoCAD by itself would be a nightmare. Land F/X seems to have ironed out the kinks of working with such a monster of a program. The specificity of the product and its ease of use make it irreplaceable for my day-to-day workflow. While the program itself is wonderful, the support is even better. I have never been so pleased with a purchase – truly! The Land F/X crew puts up with my nonsense way more than they should have to, and I appreciate it more than I can say. I would (and do) recommend this product to anyone in the field. I love Land F/X! You guys rule!"
Kara M. Mitchell
"F/X CAD has been instrumental in developing and producing both our landscape and irrigation plans for our projects. It has become our most essential tool within our company. Due to its simplicity and functionality, this allows us to produce our plans at a faster rate, and we love the ability to customize the interface. Having F/X CAD has been easier to work with than regular AutoCAD LT. It's faster to load and contains the express tools that we need. We have been extremely satisfied with the program; that's why we are buying more licenses. This program is a definite 'must-have' if you work the landscape architecture field. Plus the support you get with the whole staff is amazing. Well done."
J. Brian Euell
"I am much appreciative that you offer F/X CAD as a more economical option to a full version of AutoCAD. It is an essential tool for my business, and I have not noticed any difference between it and the full version."
Bristlecone Design, P.C.
"For our use, F/X CAD is the right fit. It provides all the functionality that we need and cuts out all the items that we don’t. AutoCAD Lite is too lite and the full version of AutoCAD leaves us paying for a host of features we’ll never use as Landscape Architects. Pairing F/X CAD with SketchUp provides us with the 3D capability that we need without having to learn the more cumbersome 3D capabilities of the full version of AutoCAD. I’ve been very satisfied with F/X CAD and would recommend it to other LA’s. Thanks."
"After switching to F/X CAD my work life has become much more simplified. I’ve been using the upgrade for a year or so and have seen a huge return on investment. I previously used BricsCAD and then AutoCAD LT with the Land F/X add-on. The add-on worked perfectly, but the setup wasn’t nearly as streamlined as it is with F/X CAD. There were several superfluous redundancies that are now simplified, and it’s identical to using the AutoCAD operating system I’m used to. There are so many time-saving advantages, but the peace of mind that comes with only having one program to operate is very valuable to me. It’s a fantastic system, and I encourage everyone to try it out."
Blair-Hill Landscape Associates
"If you've been waiting to upgrade your old AutoCAD 2009 license, by all means go with F/X CAD! That's what we did, and we've never looked back. Not only does F/X CAD perform flawlessly, you'll also benefit from the great, personal attention afforded by the Land F/X team. It's really a no-brainer. You don't need all the bells and whistles of the full-blown AutoCAD 3D program (you have SketchUp). Go ahead and take the leap; you'll be glad you did – we sure are!"
Brad Smith Associates Inc.
"I love F/X CAD. The customize menu is specifically designed for Landscape Architects/Designers that help navigate more efficiency through the program. I also like the no hassle in loading my old AutoCad files and receiving current AutoCad files from Architects/Cilvil Engineers that I'm work with. F/X CAD also handles importing the PDF/Goggle Maps with a breeze. This feature is a must in today's project design development process."
Michael & Sons Landscape Construction
"Like other CAD veterans around me I have logged many hours over the years using full-blown versions of AutoCAD. Even with other 3rd-party landscape software the productivity topped out early lacking the ability to associate data with objects limiting the power and flexibility for true productivity. Given I do limited 3D modeling work, the only thing missed was maybe a couple of LISP routines such as Express Tools that I believe might be supported in Rel. 2015.
"The real genius behind F/X CAD lies in well-thought-out protocol keeping data organized not only in the drawing but from job to job. I can produce a full set of landscape working documents 65% faster using F/X CAD than any other combination of software on the market. Thank you, Land F/X!"
Glandon Landscape Architecture
"F/X CAD runs like AutoCAD, but without the bells and whistles I don't use (like 3-D). It quickly imported my menus and other settings, so there was little down time changing from AutoCAD to F/X CAD, and getting my desktop and laptop set up to work away. I cannot wait to start using it with SketchUp."
"F/X CAD has been a great addition to our office. We were going to purchase the standard AutoCAD for two new stations. Then we discussed our options of purchasing the F/X Cad instead and have found it to be nearly as versatile. We still have one full version of AutoCAD in the office which I use with the Land F/X software but the two new stations have the F/X CAD and I have not seen any loss of productivity or function. Plus we obtained the Land F/X software for approximately the same price as the full AutoCAD program licensee."
James P. Benedetti
"Our design/build landscape office switched from AutoCAD LT to F/X CAD about 6 months ago, and it was a great decision. It feels just like using AutoCAD to me – anything that I would use in regular AutoCAD is available in F/X CAD, and all the troubleshooting forums/tutorials for regular AutoCAD are still helpful."
"When I first heard about F/X CAD, I was thrilled at the prospect. As a small landscape architecture office, the opportunity to have a high-quality, much more affordable version of AutoCAD is truly a game changer. Even my small two-man operation can afford to keep up to date on my drafting software without breaking the bank. It also gives me exactly what I need without having to pay for functions I'll never use. Combined with Land F/X, it allows me to chase bigger work and get it done more efficiently. Having software that lets my office turn out 'big company' work for 'small company' overhead? F/X CAD for the win."
White Pine Land Studio
"I have been using FX CAD in our office for almost 4 years now, and have zero complaints so far. F/X CAD does everything we need it to do and handles files from outside sources without a hiccup.
"I prefer an uncluttered and efficient drafting workspace (modified AutoCAD Classic), and I have all the customization options I need to achieve that. It works just like AutoCAD because it IS AutoCAD.
"Also worth noting is that the support available for both F/X CAD and Land F/X is phenomenal. They truly understand what LA’s do, and what we need our software to do."
Stangeland & Associates Inc.
"I am a sole proprietor and would not be able to develop and manage construction drawings by myself without F/X CAD. Office standards for line weights, plant schedules, and labeling are all done in a flash, plus there are so many intuitive functions which take the tediousness of drafting out of the picture. Get in a bind? The LandF/X team quickly helps you out – better than finding an expert in your own office!"
Anderson Land Lanning
"I like F/X CAD because it has the functionality that I need at a reasonable price."
LDB Landscape Architecture & Engineering
"We have been using F/X CAD since you came out with it and have experienced absolutely no setback in how we work because it works just like our AutoCAD software we bought directly from Autodesk. The only difference, besides the lack of 3D capability, is that we spent so much less money on the original seats and the upgrades each year are far less than AutoDesk. This was a very good move for us. We have had no issues with sending files to consultants or opening files from other CAD programs and, frankly, there is no reason to 'warn' anyone that they are getting a file made by F/X CAD, because it is no different. Nobody even knows we are using it.
"We have also been using Land F/X for quite a few years and could not be happier with the software. It has streamlined much of our work, enabling us to spend more time on design and less on production. I must also say that your customer support has always been fantastic. Please thank everyone there at Land F/X for all of their support. That includes you, Krystal!"
Wynn Smith Landscape Architecture Inc.
"I love my F/X CAD. It does everything I need it to do. It is very cost effective, which allows me to upgrade to the most current version each year without breaking the bank."
Clark Irrigation Design & Consulting
"Green Consulting Group has utilized Land F/X since it was first introduced to Landscape Architects. I have been a Registered Landscape Architect in Florida since October 1982 and have had the opportunity in my career to utilize many advances in technology. Many of the previous attempts to help me do my job were a waste of time, as they promised many things and delivered on few of the promises. I will say that the developers of Land F/X have always delivered. My staff members created a personal relationship with the Land F/X staff and each time we saw a need or asked "Could you the program do _____?" Land F/X has added the function. GCG has completed over 800 plans utilizing Land F/X. Since the introduction of F/X CAD, it is the only CADD product I utilize as it continues to work seamlessly with the many CADD base files I receive from the 15+ Civil Engineers I support with Landscape Architectural services."
Timothy W. Green
"For our purposes, using F/X CAD has been no different than using AutoCAD."
Hans N. Flinch
"F/X CAD is a wonderful CAD platform for landscape architects. Who likes paying for things they don’t use? F/X CAD removes the items I don’t use, reducing the price. Pairing F/X CAD with Land F/X software gives me what I need: a CAD platform geared to landscape architects. Land F/X also supports F/X CAD, giving me all my technical support in one place."

“I have been using F/X CAD 2013 & 2014 and the full Land F/X Suite since November of last year, and this program has been outstanding! I routinely share files back and forth with clients who use AutoCAD 2008 and AutoCAD 2013LT without any problems. I'm looking forward to installing F/X CAD 2015 when it's released!”
LA Modo, LLC
“As the principal Landscape Architect of StoneCreek Land Design & Development, I can honestly say that I could not be happier with our decision to purchase F/X CAD. To date, we have yet to encounter a single technical issue that has created complications in our collaborative design process. Our work is diversified, ranging from municipal and public works to single-family residential homesites.”
StoneCreek Land Design & Development
“Every Landscape Architect should be using F/X CAD, but don’t tell our competitors. F/X CAD gives us a competitive advantage to the point that it seems unfair. F/X CAD is CAD, only better.
"F/X CAD makes our business more productive and profitable and our projects more precise and efficient. The thought of not using F/X CAD, well, that thought doesn’t exist. We’d sooner go back to lighting our studio with candles than move away from F/X CAD.
"We work with a number of different architects and engineers all over the country, who all use different design platforms, and F/X CAD works seamlessly with all of them. Collaboration and teamwork is central to our firm’s culture, and the firms we partner with. F/X CAD helps us to be a great team member.
"Not only is the software itself fantastic, but the customer service and support we receive from Jeremiah and Forrestt is unmatched. For over 7 years we’ve been with F/X CAD, and everyone in the organization we have interacted with has been extremely helpful and understanding of our requests and issues.
"F/X CAD is an integral part of our business, and we’re happy to have the F/X CAD folks on our team.”
