"Last winter, we converted our design department over to Land F/X and F/X CAD (from BricsCAD version 2006) in December. By the end of February, we hit the ground running for the spring design rush. The online video tutorials, two-minute Quick Tip emails, and easily searchable help forum on Land F/X’s website made it easy for our designers to learn the program’s basics and get my design team trained and comfortable in just a few months. Our designers are not computer gurus, and whenever an issue comes up where we need some technical support, the help team at Land F/X is always a phone call away and can the problem within hours. We’ve nearly doubled our design production this season, thanks in large part to the increased efficiency in producing planting & irrigation plans with the Land F/X and Irrigation F/X software. We now spend about half the time drafting our plans with Land F/X, so we have much more time to put into the actual design of our projects! Converting to Land F/X has been a huge boost to sales volume, quality, and profitability of the design department. Thanks, Land F/X team!"

"I have been using Land F/X for all of my landscape designs for several years, and it has changed my working life!
"Land F/X saves so much time on the mundane, tedious parts of designing that it frees up time for more creative thinking. The ease and simplicity of plant labeling alone is worth its weight in gold. In addition to the awesome planting part of Land F/X, the other parts of the program I’ve become hooked on are detail tools, the lighting tools, and the ease of its connection to SketchUp. If all that wasn’t enough, the staff at Land F/X are always kindly available to help with technical issues no matter the complexity (or simplicity). Finally, there is an extensive o-line library of videos with quick tips and webinars of in-depth lessons on the many ways Land F/X can be utilized.
"All in all, a fantastic price and an amazing company."
Louise Leff Landscape Architecture
"I have been in the field of landscape architecture for almost 40 years. It’s difficult to remember that there was a time when all our plans were drawn by hand and that with the advent of the computer that work has become more and more time efficient, accurate, and graphically pleasing. I think the thing I like best about drawing software is that it enables me to spend more time on design (which is what I really love to do) and less time on organizing and preparing plans.
"Which brings me to your software, Land F/X. I remember when I first saw some plans that had been prepared using Land F/X. It was impressive, and the more I found out about what the software could do and the resources that it provided, the more I knew I had to bring it to my practice. Since then, it has lived up to my expectations in every way. It is fast, productive, and cost effective, and it creates the nicest-looking plans that I have seen since I started in this business. It is so productive, in fact, that instead of two designer/draftpersons like I used to have, I can get the same amount of work done with one. Schedules are maintained, deadlines are met, and my clients are happy.
"I have had my own practice for the past 25 years. I am successful and I continue to be. I have had a reputation for doing good work, and I attribute a lot of that success to the talented folks around me, and the innovative, creative tools that make the process of design a joy to be a part of. I consider Land F/X to be one of those tools."

"We have used Land F/X in our office for years and are very glad we made the switch. Land F/X has been a true cost savings to our company and has saved us immense amounts of time on labor-intensive tasks such as irrigation design and pipe sizing. We love Land F/X, and it is the standard for our office for all our construction document projects. The savings have put more money in our pocket and allowed us to also pass the savings onto our customers, helping us to not only be more competitive but also to maintain repeat customer business because of the competitive advantage that Land F/X has given our company."

"Land F/X is applicable to landscape design companies of all scales. It helps an office run more efficiently and increase productivity. It takes the mundane out of the design process. The technical support is professional and friendly at all times."
DHA Landscape Architecture
"The Land F/X software is an outstanding program designed by landscape architects for the profession. As a sole proprietor, I’ve found that the software automates many of the work tasks using BIM to automatically track quantities and revisions that would otherwise take hours to complete manually. It allows me to work efficiently and accurately and take on large projects myself that normally would require several staff to complete. It provides a seamless interface with complementary drawing programs such as SketchUp, colorization and detail preparation, and provides a complete system of pre-defined templates for preparing great-looking plans from the concept level through final construction documents. The software can be customized to suit the user’s needs and preferences.
"The staff members at Land F/X offer excellent service and technical support and are very inspirational and dedicated to constantly improving their software. They are entrusted by AutoCAD as an authorized re-seller and their software is very affordable given the time savings, quality and complexity of the final products that can be generated using it."

"The software is so easy to use, and it’s organized in the way landscape designers think. The irrigation software has saved me countless hours of mindless work while leaving the work that requires human intelligence to me. The 3D program is quick and easy with realistic vegetation and landscape structural features. Best of all, we can customize just about anything to fit our needs. Land F/X is opening the doors for us and our clients as we explore adventures and joys of using the software. We get support quickly, simply, and with endless patience. The webinars and tutorial sections are easy to follow. We consider the Land F/X staff as our cyber friends and family who are helping us discover more benefits of the Land F/X and F/X CAD software every day. It is the best value ever. I do not know why anyone wouldn’t give it a try."
Lehuta Kirsch Landscape Architecture
"Land F/X is a critical tool used daily in our office. The constant updates and customer service that is second to none allow us to focus on productivity and efficiency rather than downtime. We were fortunate enough to start using Land F/X early on and have had nothing but good experiences."

"Land F/X has been a game changer in our office. All of the exceptional features that are included streamline our CAD time on every project, both residential and commercial. Originally, we purchased this product specifically for the planting features but quickly realized that we could benefit from all of the additional features – i.e., Reference Notes, details, and irrigation. We now incorporate every aspect of the Land F/X programs into all of our day-to-day projects."
Mills Design Group
"After testing other products, we continue to choose F/X CAD. It concentrates and streamlines essential landscape and irrigation design tools and eliminates the hassle and cost of other non-essentials for our field. Land F/X allows us to load templates previously created containing either clients or municipalities requirements in to a clean drawing. Land F/X also generates schedules with materials used and updated quantities without having to recalculate distances, areas or count blocks used, just select update schedule and your quantities and materials used are up to date. Our QAQC process runs smoother thanks to its built-in features. Irrigation F/X contains built-in error checking functions that allow you to check that the equipment placed is both connected to the water supply and that the water supply is going to be sufficient to handle the demand with just the click of a button. We especially appreciate the friendly and knowledgeable support team, the extensive tutorials and tips library."
"Too often operating a business in a country geographically distant such as New Zealand, you can feel a long way from the action and ability to access the support you need. This is never the case if Land F/X – you always get straight back to our emails and provide excellent webinars without the need to go and hunt them out."

"I am still a newbie with Land F/X and certainly am not harnessing all of the functions and power of the software, but I am enjoying using the program. I used to loathe doing CAD work, but enjoy doing the work now using Land F/X. The amount of time I am saving doing plans is really the return on the investment of purchasing the software. The tutorials and forums on the website have been of tremendous help, and your support team has been great every time I have called in for assistance."

"I'm brand new to Land F/X. I recently purchased a brand-new laptop workstation with Windows 10 on it. Everything was running great on the new machine until it came time to load AutoCAD. Due to some complicated update issues with Windows 10 and some other configurations, getting AutoCAD installed on the new machine turned out to be a major ordeal! Alden Wilson pulled out all the stops in several remote assistance sessions, but this error was not an easy fix. He did not give up, however. Each time that he went away without the solution, he came back with new things to try. After MUCH persistence and determination, Alden prevailed and solved the most stubborn tech support problem I've ever seen. I hope I don't have to go through something like that again, but if I do, I hope I have a guy like Alden on board! My hat is off to Alden and the whole Land F/X team! You rock, and you have a loyal customer!"

"The business is going well, and Land F/X is a big part of that. It is such a great program, and it allows for me to be as efficient as possible in creating landscape and irrigation plans for my clients – something especially important to me when I am working on these projects at night or on the weekend. Getting back to family time as quickly as possible is a huge plus that Land F/X allows me to do so well."
Chad D. Weinand
"So glad we got the program. I had an impossible deadline that became possible thanks to Land F/X. Still learning, but I love the Internet access learning and troubleshooting tools that are available 24/7 – again it saved me when working in the middle of the night. I also found your support system to be quick and responsive. Here at Meier, we pride ourselves on customer service. It's nice to work with a company that is similarly minded. Keep up the good work."
Meier Architecture & Engineering
"Just a quick note to voice my appreciation for Land F/X. It's Saturday night and I've been going over the Power Tips. There were a number of them that I hadn't seen, and I was blown away by how sophisticated the program has become. Thrilled to have the program. Thanks to all for making my work easier."

"We have never been more pleased dealing with a support team as we were with Land F/X. Each and every member was courteous, pleasant, concerned, helpful, and professional until the very end of our computer crisis. (This is rare in today's business world.)
"We needed to change out our old server computer with a newer one so the architect's and office staff could be much faster and be more productive in their jobs.
"The changeover consisted of transferring Land F/X software, years of files, and commutations with other work stations.
"The Land F/X support team made this statement: "We will stay with you until this issue is fixed.” And that is exactly what they did.
"We say 'thank you' to the Land F/X technical support team for the support they provided to our company during this critical process of changeover.
"Wow! Our company didn't miss a beat, and the architects and staff were very impressed.The Land F/X Support Team provided what is most important to their customers, and that is ... loyalty!"

"We are doing well with Land F/X here at GL. It’s been a huge time saver for us, and we are not doing any planting plans that are not drawn in Land F/X at this time. Plant lists, accuracy of quantities, etc. – it’s all been a huge help. I am always telling other L.A.’s who do work for us that they need to look into your software. Thanks again."

"I am finally getting around to doing my first project in Land F/X and I gotta tell ya, I love it! The way I built plans yesterday already seems archaic. Many thanks."
Mike Flaugh, Landscape Architect
"As a one-man Landscape Architectural firm, efficiency and cost effectiveness are key requirements of any software that I use. With F/X CAD, I have both. It gives me the efficiency that I need to get my work completed without the unnecessary extras that other CAD software include. With the integration of SketchUp, the product does not have the cumbersome 3D aspects of other CAD platforms.
"F/X CAD provides the other key requirement – cost effectiveness. The initial start-up cost was low enough for a smaller firm to recoup that investment in a short amount of time. The costs of the renewals/upgrades are also another reason that I incorporated F/X CAD into my office software. With a reasonable renewal fee each year, it makes it manageable for a sole proprietor to stay up to date with the newest version. This allows me to work closely with the larger architecture and engineering firms seamlessly.
"Also, with F/X CAD you get some of the best customer service in the industry. When I have had issues (usually on my end), F/X CAD has provided quick and effective customer service that got me back to work swiftly. Thanks."
Roberson Resource Group, LLC
"I have been active in the irrigation industry for 28 years. After years of fighting with another design program, I finally purchased Irrigation F/X in 2012. It is, by far, the best purchase I have made in all these years. The program is easy to learn with all the online videos, and the support from the staff at Land F/X has been amazing. I can highly recommend this program to anybody in the irrigation industry."
Certified Irrigation Designs
"We have been using Land F/X at our office for a couple of years now, and I cannot imagine going back to a workflow without Land F/X. We immediately saw time savings in the basic planting design and schedule tools. Area takeoffs and schedule generations that used to take hours just before deadlines are now automated and accurate. And that was the easy part. Once we started using the Detail Manager and Reference Notes tools, we not only saw additional time savings, but the overall quality and accuracy of our plans improved. We utilize Land F/X in a multidiscipline office that includes planners and civil engineers. While Land F/X worked great “out of the box,” it was easily customized to our existing office CAD standards.
"The best part of Land F/X is the staff that support it. Any issues we have are quickly resolved. Their customer service is the best I have seen in this industry."
Coe & Van Loo
"FX/CAD is a fabulous tool to take Landscape Architecture output to the next level. F/X functionality seamlessly integrated with AutoCAD made our design world a breeze! The-up-to-date, linked databases eliminate a lot of catalog searching, which saves significant time. F/X CAD extends your possibilities way beyond the standard AutoCAD; it is like AutoCAD on steroids! We totally applaud F/X CAD, a must for every Landscape Architecture/Design studio. Planting trees on computer monitors has never been so much fun!"
JoLoè Art – Purveyors of Awesome
"I have used F/X CAD now for one year and find it is a superior, very stable drawing system compared with the other CAD system I used, and this was the primary reason I decided to switch to F/X CAD. F/X CAD has all the functionality that I require as a Landscape Architect dovetailing Land F/X, resulting in improved productivity rates for me and improved alteration times for my clients and giving me a much-improved design, layout, presentation and client service. To date, I have only used its basic modes realising that it has considerably greater potential to be explored. I thoroughly recommend F/X CAD together with Land F/X."
Landscape Architect, Cheshire, UK
"We are very pleased with our F/X CAD software. It does everything our design/build office could ask for and more. Complete drafting capabilities, PDF underlays, and standard tools make this CAD program essential. The seamless integration with Land F/X makes planting plans a breeze. Support from Land F/X has always far exceeded my expectations!"
Christensen Landscape Services
"I have used F/X CAD and Irrigation F/X since November 2013. They are very great products. It takes a learning curve, but once you familiar with the software, it is very easy to work with. I had a problem once with an update and couldn’t access the software, and it was like the end of the world. I can’t live without Land F/X anymore. Land F/X speeds up the design process by about 25%. The ease of scheduling is also a great benefit – it’s very easy and fast to get the results. I recommend it for anyone with basic knowledge in manual irrigation design. Great products, and great support."
PT PUTRA ANDALAN JAYA
"F/X CAD is a very powerful low-cost solution for a landscape architectural firm. I have yet to find a command or a LISP program that I am missing from the full AutoCAD program. I am able to open the Civil 3D files from our internal civil design group as well as our outside civil consultants.
"It has a very low initial investment cost vs. a full version of AutoCAD. We are also able to keep up with the latest version with a very low yearly fee. We no longer need to ask for an earlier version that we can open from our consultants.
"What really makes F/X CAD a great investment is their customer service and support. They have gone out of their way to help us a number of times with any issues that we may be having running the program even if it is a hardware or a network issue.
"I highly recommend F/X CAD to any landscape architectural / civil firm. If you combine it with the Land F/X program, it far exceeds any of the other 'landscape architectural' design program in the industry."
Earl J. Swetland
Coe & Van Loo
"Switching over from AutoCAD to F/X CAD was smooth and seamless, with great technical support from the Land F/X team. When asked what the difference is between the two, our draftsman responded, 'What difference?' F/X CAD works just the same as AutoCAD for everything we do! We needed two licenses of CAD but only had one license of Land F/X, so to purchase two seats of F/X CAD we needed to add another Land F/X license. This still ended up being cheaper than getting the full version of AutoCAD. On top of that, we can now have two draftsmen working in Land F/X, which has proven to be helpful in getting out multiple projects under a time crunch."
West Bay Landscape
"I have been using F/X CAD along with full Land F/X and Irrigation F/X for about a year now, and love it! So much so that from the trial, I bought a personal copy for home projects and side design work. As well as convinced my boss to let me purchase a copy for the office by showing him how much time can be saved from hand typing plant labels, group counts, large project plant schedules, color plans in an instant … the list goes on. I continue to be amazed at the amount of heavy calculations this program can do for me in the blink of an eye. It adds so much more to plain AutoCAD, it is unbelievable. Also gone are the days of tedious calcs for irrigation systems design, done with one-click pipe sizing, and complete zone and system error checking helps me visualize everything so quickly and simply! And all the added calcs/reports are awesome ... they make me look like a math genius.
"Anyone in the Landscape/Irrigation Industry that is seeking to produce high-quality, professional CAD drawings with extreme accuracy, and in the least amount of time possible, will eventually find that F/X CAD with Land F/X is THE BEST solution! Thank you, Land F/X!"
Landscape and Irrigation Designer
"As a small practice of Landscape Architecture, we are always looking at ways to save money, and were hesitant to upgrade our legacy AutoCAD due to the cost of the upgrades. In 2013, we finally purchased F/X CAD, and now wished we did it sooner. It has sped up our billable hours tremendously, and we get projects accomplished faster.
"F/X CAD is the perfect tool for us; it has all the functions that we used in regular AutoCAD, and removed all the functions we didn’t use. The Nuke tool is awesome – that alone saves us hours cleaning up files received from Architects and Engineers. Thank you, Land F/X!"
The LandArt Design Group, Inc.
"Outfitting a design office with the best and most efficient software has always been a financially draining experience. Since the introduction of F/X CAD, our per-user costs have been cut in half, and support is directly from the great people at Land F/X. We are proud users of F/X CAD and Land F/X."
Nature Forms, LLC
"F/X CAD is a great program! It speeds up our planting plans and ensures accuracy! Which frees up a ton of time … and as we all know, time is money!"
Red Valley Landscape & Construction
"I have used AutoCAD and Land F/X for many years now – mostly under the auspices of large design firms. When I started my own design/build landscape business, I knew I needed AutoCAD, but was reluctant to purchase it because of the hefty price tag. With perfect timing, Land F/X introduced their own version of AutoCAD to work in tandem with Land F/X, but with a much more affordable sticker price than the version directly through Autodesk.
"Since I purchased F/X CAD, I have not regretted it for one minute! From a practical point of view, it provides all the functions I need, and have always needed, to create full detailed plans for landscape, hardscape, and irrigation. When working in this version of AutoCAD, I see no difference between a full-on copy of CAD purchased directly through Autodesk (for thousands more) and the FX version. I'm about to purchase my second license for AutoCAD & Land F/X, now needed as my company expands, and I couldn't do that without Land F/X!
"In addition, the tech support you receive with this software when purchased through Land F/X is just super, especially when compared with Autodesk (none?) Keep up the great work, guys – you are helping make small businesses like myself grow into the big guys of tomorrow."
Weeds Garden & Interior Design
"I have had no problem interacting with files from architects and engineers who are using full AutocCAD as well as other design programs. I have enjoyed my F/X CAD experience very much without having to buy a full AutoCAD license. F/X CAD has all the features I need!"
Michael S. Small
Jackson & Small Associates – GA
"F/X CAD is the right tool for the job. There are a ton of specifics that F/X CAD offers that will save time and cut costs. The function of F/X CAD versus AutoCAD is seamless. Not to date oneself, but I was educated in the CAD programs using AutoCAD release 13 years ago. When moving to and picking up F/X CAD, the learning curve was virtually nonexistent. It was like talking to an old friend, only the old friend was now cooler and more helpful. I’m always glad that I ran into this old friend again!"
"You have developed a great product. It is exactly what we need to be more efficient in our business. F/X CAD is the best software for applications in landscape architecture. It has proved to be just as fast and reliable, or even better than our existing system at a very big reduction in cost. A combination of reliability, rich functionality and price were the deciding factors to lead us to choose F/X CAD. The same traditional AutoCAD but much better!"
Marcos Peruzzi Projetos e Consult. Ltda
"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."
Carl N. Berg
Berg Landscape Architects
“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.”

"You can’t do landscape architecture effectively without this program. It is invaluable."
"Thank you so much. Your tech support is by far better than any other I have used. I am getting used to Land F/X and will be self supporting soon. I truly look forward to working with your program further, and am excited about the level of support. The people I have talked to so far have been delightful to work with and very supportive."
Fisher Irrigation and Landscape
"As I mentioned I'm a huge fan of Land F/X and sing your praises anytime I can. The customer service beats the pants off of any company with which I have ever dealt!!! I'm presenting a park design to a client next week and will have all my 3D tools available thanks to the timely fashion you were able to fix the bug I was experiencing. As I said, you are top notch. My career has always revolved around customer satisfaction, and I thought I was one of the best at it until I found y'all.
"Thanks again for such a great product, and I look forward to doing more business with Land F/X in the future! Y'all are the best."

"The presentation was great. The students got a lot out of it. I appreciate how flexible [the presenter] was. Thank you for the pizzas too!"
Professor, West Virginia University
"Dave did a nice job with the irrigation presentation at our school. The students were impressed at the ability of the software, and they really became interested when he began to develop a sprinkler layout on the site that they had been working on for a couple of weeks. Some got very excited when he decided to use the sprinkler that they had personally selected. With that said, I would like someone to come back next year and do it again. Thanks again for the help. I got positive feedback from the students, and I think a couple of them have already watched the tutorials that you have on your website."
Cal Poly San Luis Obispo
"I included this software in the Construction course I taught last year, and they provided a Lunch and Learn for the students. The presentation was very well received. Land F/X is the first piece of CAD software developed by LA's for LA's. It is an integral part of our CAD system at our office. I feel its greatest benefits are in the production of plan sets, and therefore students should be exposed to it. If you can find time in your schedule to implement Land F/X, I would highly recommend it."
University of Connecticutt
"Speaking for myself and teaching Irrigation F/X, I think we are covered and the students will be finishing their plans next week. With the many fine Land F/X video tutorials, extensive help documentation, and my own written tutorials, templates, and troubleshooting guides that I have developed over the last five years, teaching irrigation design has been very smooth. Keep up the good work, Land F/X!"
Kansas State University
"I did get a chance to attend the webinar at my school. All I have to say is wow, I really love how easy Land F/X is to use and the things you can do with it. I will definitely be using it for all my projects now. I really enjoy how easy it makes things and how it is linked with SketchUp ... it's going to save me a lot of time."
"The presentation was helpful and educational! The pizza was also very good."

Social Chair, SCASLA
The Ohio State University
"The lecture was really inspiring! Wish I could thank the lecturer again for his excellent job! Instantly fell in love with the program learning how it improves CAD exponentially!"
University of Georgia
"Thank you for offering this program for students. When they mentioned that we'd need AutoCAD and SketchUp this semester, I started biting my lip. Other programs were not cheap last year (even at student discount), so having entities such as Land F/X and Autodesk offering products like these to newbies is amazing to say the least. So again, thank you so much. Just watching a few of the tutorials has really got me jazzed about this software.
"Can't wait to get on my feet and running with these programs. I'm 34 and new to design (lifelong dream, just took a while to get started) but as shy as I am about drawing, I still really like the organic nature of it more than electronic. However, I'm not a fool. I know where the future is heading, so a head start now will be a tremendous blessing."
University of Idaho
"As you know, I just learned about Land F/X and was blown away. My friends and I have told people about the program, and it seems like word is traveling fast. And the thing about it is, I don't know even a quarter of what there is to know about it. I hope to talk to you soon and I hope it's to where I can meet a few of you and learn more about this great program."
ASLA Student Chapter Executive Committee Member
Mississippi State University
"I will be a junior in the program this year and I was exposed to Land F/X as a freshman. I've progressed ever since, but I think that it is well worth the time learning, and that it should be implemented more into our program."
Utah State University
"My favorite reaction to the Land F/X videos came from a student who frequently and emphatically (although with good humor) bemoaned his continuing frustration with CAD – 'It's worth learning CAD just to be able to do this!'"
University of Florida
"I have just begun using the software, and I'm just amazed at how much easier it is to design, place, and count all my plants! Love it!"

“Thanks for all of your support of our students and program.”
Program Director, UCLA Extension
“Thank you Land F/X staff for the pizza and excellent presentation. The students were amazed that you ordered from a great local pizza place and then went on to have a wonderful presentation! We had about 30+ students from different class levels as well as one of the main professors of our program. Now that the software is installed on all the lab computers and students are aware of the design capabilities, I have seen many of them “playing around” and getting familiar with the software in their free time.”
President, Student Organization of Landscape Design and Contracting (SOLDAC)
Colorado State University
"I just wanted to follow up with you after last Friday's webinar. [Your] overview of Land F/X was helpful to students, many of whom will be exploring the program this week on their spring break. Also, thank you for the pizza. As a small student club, every little bit helps our budget."

“I have spent the greater part of my day working through this program and I have to say it is AWESOME! My past few years of school would have been a lot easier if I would have known about your software. This program has singlehandedly made my life a million times easier. I look forward to learning more and appreciate all of the help that is so easily accessible. Thank you for all of the support. You (and your software) have made my day! Happy customer.”
University of Florida
"The Land F/X webinars are great. There is a huge increase in interest for Land F/X here at Texas A&M. I am teaching a digital design class next semester and would like to schedule an individualized class lecture with you. Besides myself, other classes will be implementing the program into their instruction, specifically the Site Engineering Class and the Site Design Studios. Foundational and Computer Aided Design Classes will also be including Land F/X in their class instruction.
"As with most introductions into programs, the students were primarily interested in the flashier operations of the program while the professionals and professors were interested in the drier aspects such as information building. Overall, the presentations were a great balance.
"We at Texas A&M University thank you all immensely for all of your efforts and assistance in this weeklong endeavor. We are eager to learn, use, and teach the program and are looking forward to working with Land F/X in the future."
Professor, Texas A&M
"The students at the University of Oregon found the presentation on Land F/X to be very interesting and informative. We learned a lot of things that we could put to good use. I myself will definitely look into it for my final studio project. Thank you for doing this, and we would like to continue presentations for future students."
President, University of Oregon SCASLA
"After watching the webinar introduction to Land F/X, my students thanked me for arranging the lecture to learn about some new CAD software. They are eager to apply Land F/X on their next projects."
"Thank you for the great presentation on Land F/X. It is definitely a powerful software that is geared towards Landscape Architects (major plus), and a software like no other at that. We had roughly 40 students show up for the presentation. Which is almost all the seniors and juniors. Everyone was very impressed with Land F/X – lots of oohs and ahhhs with the planting plan tools and the conceptual SketchUp models. Definitely a successful presentation. Looking forward to experimenting with Land F/X."
President, West Virginia University SSLA
"You all at Land F/X provided our students with the tremendous opportunity to utilize Land F/X's powerful tools. The students found the program tremendously useful and suitable for their strong ambition and desire to grow. Your generosity is greatly appreciated. The students had the privilege of being awarded 50 student licenses for academic use. They all learned to understand Land F/X's efficiency and value and why every professional office should own the program. The University of Idaho Landscape Architecture students thank you and look forward to the privilege taking part in a revolutionary tool. We look forward to working with you"
President, Student Chapter American Society of Landscape Architecture
University of Idaho
"If for no other reason than Land F/X placing “Pipe Hops” in the right location, the software should be purchased by all irrigation designers, because that feature alone makes it worth the cost times 10! The only liability of the Land F/X software program is, however, that we get the work done so damnable fast that we lose money, that is of course given that we charge for time rather than results! The jury is still out on that feature because I still charge on result!"
"Land F/X is excellent for what we do, making irrigation design a breeze. Although [our designer] is quite adept with CAD already, Irrigation F/X allows him/us to get designs out quicker, allowing me to install with all relevant information in my hands at a glance."
“You are amazing. Thanks for working on my issue [Rain Bird pressure loss inconsistent]. I know things go wrong but neither LandCAD nor Watermark would make changes to their programs as quickly."
Cummings Curley and Associates, Inc.
“I'm just glad to be involved, your company has given me the resources to reach potential beyond my wildest imagination in order to give my client the best irrigation system humanly possible! Why everyone isn't using Land F/X is beyond me! Tomorrow morning I have an appointment with one of the largest architecture firms in Florida. Because Land F/X allows me to complete the work twice as fast as composition, this will be like shooting dead fish in an empty barrel! By the way, “J” has outdone himself (again) with the new flow zone pipe sizing feature; I'm astonished. Now I can design loopdeloops in the mainlines, the way I used to in pen & ink. I tested this new addition to Land F/X. It works flawlessly, which is the highest compliment I have to give! Thanks so much for everything.
“It saves us a lot of time for planning irrigation work."
Van Dorn Abed Landscape Architects Inc.
“Just thought you'd like to know, I've designed irrigation over 30 years, starting with pen & ink then to AutoCAD since 1987. This is my first project with Land F/X. I had to redo a large apartment complex as the developer rejected my first design as I separated turf from shrub bed on different zones based on the direction give to me by the Landscape Architect, naturally! Anyway, with Land F/X on the same project it is by my estimate at least 75% faster then any other way I've designed with in the past!!! Not to mention the extreme accuracy with this software, it makes this arduous, boringly mundane task fun and simple. All I can tell you is this software works perfectly for my needs. Thank you so much for spending the time and money to develop this package. I highly recommend this to everyone in this industry that takes designing sprinkler systems seriously. My only regret is I didn't buy this package sooner!"
William B. Curtis
"I am so TOTALLY hooked on Land F/X. It has been the best expense decision I made for my company [this past year]."
"I've never known a company that is so concerned about their subscribers as your company! I am deeply appreciative. It is almost like a family helping out, not just another company."
"It's truly amazing how much my productivity level has increased. I've really only scratched the surface of what the software can do too. Big fan."
"What has struck me so much about Land F/X is that it has been developed and continues to evolve by landscape architects. As you know, landscape architecture is a unique profession and difficult for many on the outside to fully appreciate or utilize to its maximum potential. Land F/X seems to have the edge from this perspective. It's a powerful tool that also can continue to help advance the field."
"I have recently completed a set of site docs that were compiled with your details, callouts for details and grading, planting and maybe something else – more of your features than I have used in one project to date. Couldn’t have done it without you guys. Thanks a million. Best regards to all, including the new 'family members.’"
"I just wanted to say how happy we are with Land F/X at Sage. We especially appreciate the prompt customer support/care and business transparency. As customers, it is really great to see a company continually developing their product and not turn their back on their customers. Thank you!"

Angelos Lawnscape of LA
"We do so much work, and the turnover is so fast, if we had to do it by hand or even with AutoCAD, we could never get it all done."
"I just finished designing the Disney Cruise Terminal, which I estimated would take me 10 days, since it's 12.5 acres. I finished the job in under 2 days, which is sickening! I can't believe this program is so dang fast and works so perfectly! How do you think I felt when I finished 8 days before the deadline? I've called my shrink, made an appointment to work past this hitherto for unknown feeling of calmness. Now I'm left with absolutely nothing to complain about or be paralyzed by anxiety with for not meeting the deadline! So, it's finally come down to this!"
“As far as the software goes, we absolutely love it. It is just the cat's meow with our work, and everything is so much easier than how we did things before."

"I know I ask a lot of questions, but you are always accommodating. I appreciate it greatly. When I am done with these two projects, one in Exuma Bahamas, the other in St. Lucia, I will send them to you so you can see what I was up against. St. Lucia is metric, and has about 120 different plants being so close to the equator. Exuma has about the same, due to it being a resort and they want lots of color. They are fun, and I am happy to be designing using the software. The software actually makes designing fun. You can quote me on that. It is fun to use, fun to see the software do exactly what we expect it to do (sometimes more).
"On a good note, residential drawings take me about ¼ the time and look great. All in all, the residential part that I do is about half of my business, and this saves me a ton of time. I like being able to design with the software."

"We've been using [Land F/X] for a few months and find that their claims about accuracy, simplicity and productivity are dead-on. The detail management system is excellent. I have used LandCADD for years, and it truly sucks compared to Land F/X."
"You have been very wonderful to work with. I hope to have a long-lasting relationship with you and your firm."
"We pull most of our products from the Land F/X database management system. Since you’re apparently a partner, there is a good chance that we will consider your products."
"I really appreciate the personal attention you provide."
"We were very happy with how the webinar went; the questions asked during the presentation were important and added to the value of the webinar."
"Looks good. Thanks again for all of your support, patience, and assistance."
"Thank you so much for being persistent, making contact with others in the Toro and Irritrol organization, and getting what you needed to start the update process. This is the kind of service that reminds me why it was a good decision to partner with the Land F/X team."
"The project that I'm working on now has equipment from two of the manufacturers that you added late last year. I'm a proud supporter of the Land F/X partners."
"Thank you for working diligently on our behalf, and moving things along very well."
"You guys are great to work with."
"Thanks for the webinar. It was a good showing, a different media to show our products, and will lead to interest from different areas.
“The Land F/X team has been great to work with, and we should see the benefits in the coming years. I want to extend my thanks, as I know how hard it is to keep AutoCAD designs and specifications in order, let alone have tens of thousands from all the manufacturers in the irrigation industry. Land F/X, while trying to keep up with all the updates and new designs, as well as uploading all the specs to the design platform, still gave us the personal service, and treated us like their only client. We appreciate the outstanding service and feel we have a new partner. Thank you … "
"We have been very impressed with Land F/X. You have a very professional and organized team. It has been a very positive experience for us.
"Land F/X is TRULY a professional landscape architectural and irrigation design software program. The program is incredibly easy to use, and if you do need assistance or have questions, their customer service is astounding. I firmly believe your projects will be designed more efficiently and smoothly when you use such a helpful tool!"
"In terms of my general experience as a Supporting Manufacturer with Land F/X, it has been very good. This is more than just being incorporated into a design tool. I think the marketing aspect of it has been very enlightening. The webinar went very well.
I look at everything we have done so far as being positive. Getting the details done was an added bonus, and I like the idea of having them to post on my website. I appreciate the newsletter announcements and the follow-ups with links.
Thank you again for all your help. I'm looking forward to a long-continuing relationship."

"Your system for the product interface is fantastic. I really like my F/X CAD and Irrigation F/X."
"I have been using Land F/X for about 1.5 years now. My first year was a big learning curve as I got to grips with the ins and outs of the program, it didn’t take long to find that I was saving time and being more productive. This year has started with a bang and I have had a lot of design work to do. I was able to complete the whole of last year’s turnover within the first 4 months of this year. My productivity has really sky rocketed with the use of Land F/X. This is a great program and the support and service we get from the team at Land F/X is second to none."

I can’t tell you enough how important your support has been to our firm and to our industry in general. I can’t image any firm not wanting to use your software.

"What joy! We recently presented our first concepts to a client with tools created from Land F/X and the SketchUp plugin, and they were very pleased. We created a conceptual plant palette using your extensive library of plants and symbols and exported it all to SketchUp."
It sure beats counting plants by hand and manually creating outlines!

Thank you for your quick response - your technical support is the reason why I don't ever hesitate to renew my license. Have a stellar day.
Three Men & A Shovel Landscaping
BMLA recently purchased Land F/X and produced our first large-scale project with Irrigation F/X. The project includes over 50 acres of slopes, open spaces and parks. The Final irrigation design utilizes 10 POC’s each incorporating several different irrigation methodologies from matched precipitation rate rotors, rotary type nozzles, drip irrigation and combination of 2-wire controllers and traditional controllers. This was a huge project and a perfecto opportunity to test this product at our office, and I am pleased to tell you that Land F/X exceeded all of our expectations.
We have since used Land F/X for several other projects and I would estimate that is has increased our productivity in irrigation design by at least 50%, not to mention the peace of mind provided by error checking in pipe sizing, flow and pressure. The pipe-sizing feature alone is worth the price in timesaving. The ability to add elevations from the POC to the valve and the highest head is critical for our slope irrigation design and for projects with a lot of elevation change. Instant schedules and critical worst-case analysis is another plus.
The easy to follow webinars for training made the transition to a new software program easy. Technical support has always responded in friendly and timely manner via the phone or email. Land F/X works fast and seamlessly with our existing AutoCAD platform with no fatal errors and let us use our office standard linetypes and layers to create an office template to use on all our projects. Also, we can finally get rid of all the product catalogs cluttering up our desks. Land F/X has built in all of the symbols and catalog data from most of the major manufacturers, and the Internet connectivity to product data is priceless.
For these reasons and all of the other great features not mentioned, BMLA highly recommends the Irrigation F/X product for any Landscape Architect. We can’t wait to add additional stations and start using the design, planting and detail features.

Lendon Community – Promenade Canal
Within the Lendon community there is an existing drainage canal that divides the commercial development from the Live/Work area and the Lendon House, the community’s social center. The drainage canal will ultimately be transformed into a detailed planting scheme and tree-lined pedestrian corridor while still functioning as a storm water bypass during heavy storm events. The canal will also support the Traditional Neighborhood Development (TND) lifestyle of Lendon along with the commercial development, maintaining the unique nostalgic atmosphere of a “neighborly” community paired with the modern convenience for today’s fast-paced lifestyle.
"I find the program intuitive to use, and have always been able to find answers via the website or by making a phone call. I really appreciate all the resources that are available. Although I don’t use all of the capabilities (I usually contract out irrigation design specific to the location of each project), the program is an all-around time-saver, especially since I often work with fairly large or spread-out sites. I can produce consistently clear and easy-to-read plans and installers have told me that they like that I can do plant schedules specific to each sheet (which makes logistics at install easier) AND export an Excel file of the total material schedules (which facilitates their pricing/bidding process). All around, I can’t imagine working without Land F/X!"
"I am LOVING all of the amazing tools this software has to offer. They are super easy to learn and adjust to."
