Land F/X is a set of tools developed specifically for your workflow,
built right into your CAD platform.

Developed by landscape architects for landscape architects, our planting design plugin works within AutoCAD and SketchUp. With just a few clicks, place plants as “smart” blocks and hatches embedded with all the data you need. We automate all your tedious and error-prone tasks – like error checking, counting plants, labeling, and scheduling – and make them available in easily accessible dialog boxes within CAD. And because Land F/X doesn’t use Proxy Objects, you can share drawings with consultants who don’t have Land F/X, allowing them to see all your linework and objects instantly.

Our Latest Client–Inspired Planting Features

Users like you have made Land F/X what it is today! Each week, we produce a new Power Tip video showing off tools and techniques suggested by Land F/X clients. Use these brief but informative educational videos to see some of our greatest planting features in action – and add efficiency and speed to your workflow.

Is It Customizable? Count on It!

Customize your plant symbols, label styles, leaders, layer and line colors, fonts, title blocks, plotting preferences – you name it. We make it easy to apply your standards to the entire design process, from drafting to presentation to construction documents.

Extensive Database of Trees, Shrubs, and Groundcovers

Create your virtual plant palette from a list of more than 20,000 plants while still working in AutoCAD. Our searchable plant library includes practically every genus, species, and variety you can think of. Don’t see it? You can add it. Need more information? Wiki-based plant data is built right into the software!

So Many Ways to Place Plants!

Pick your plant, and click to place it. It’s that simple. Want an even quicker option? Our specialized tools give you numerous methods for placing multiple plants in one go.

Watch just a few in action: Copy along Line, Copy along Arc, and Plant Shotgun:

Instant Plant Labeling

Label individual plants, or several at a time, with just a click using our “smart” plant labeling tools.

No More Counting Plants

It’s 4:58, and you need to turn in your plan NOW! How do you ensure that your plants are tallied and labeled correctly (and still be home in time for dinner)? Use our error-checking tools, and never count by hand again.

Schedules in Seconds

Make life easy for both yourself and the contractor! Instantly catalog your entire palette in a plant schedule that includes quantities, container sizes, costs, and as much – or as little – info you need to communicate.

Turn Up the Color

Give your plan a new level of vibrancy by clicking a button. We’ve created thousands of unique color plant symbols, and our library is constantly growing. Make a splash with your presentation, then dive back into construction mode in a flash.

Add Another Dimension with our SketchUp Connection

Have you tried SketchUp? This 3D modeling application brings your designs to life. We’ve developed a seamless channel between CAD and 3D rendering. Included with your Land F/X license, our SketchUp Connection maintains your exact plant palette, plant placements, and linework from CAD to SketchUp and back again.

The images below have been provided by Land F/X clients using our SketchUp plugin in conjunction with advanced rendering plugins such as Thea and Shaderlight.

How Easy Is It to Learn? Incredibly.

When you install our software, you’re installing a set of additional AutoCAD functions designed just for you. It’s like your landscape architecture tool belt. Need a little help? We’ve got the learning resources you need. We strive to make CAD-based landscape design simple, intuitive, and fun.

We’ve Tailored CAD to Landscape Design for Decades

Since our official launch in 2004, we’ve worked continuously, and with our clients’ input in mind, to make dramatic improvements to our software. But our story goes back much further …

Constant Updates & Improvements


When it comes to development and troubleshooting, we’re a well-oiled machine. We never stop improving our software, from shiny new features to hyper-fast fixes in the event of the occasional bug. (Seriously – our standing record from reported issue to repair patch is two minutes.) On average, we write more than 10 lines of code per day and offer a new version once a week.

CAD-Based Landscape Design is In Our Blood


Land F/X CEO and developer Jeremiah Farmer started the company with his landscape architect father, David, in a garage back in the 1990s. David had found that although AutoCAD was becoming the industry standard, it wasn’t well adapted to his field. Jeremiah had been writing code and helping with landscape drawings since childhood. His inborn love of trigonometry made him a natural to help customize AutoCAD to his father’s needs. What started as one rudimentary menu evolved into an advanced design program tailored to landscape and irrigation design. The company officially launched in 2004. Since then, the Land F/X family of plugins has grown into a trusted tool for more than 2,000 landscape architecture and irrigation design firms worldwide.

We Make Software Development a Two-Way Street


How many software companies give you a say in the development process? Not a lot! Our guiding philosophy is based on listening to our clients and giving them the tools they need. That’s why every new feature we roll out is a direct response to a client’s request for added functionality. We also encourage our clients to vote on the priority of new features.
