8 Easy Tools

It’s never been easier to learn everything you need.

The best 3D pool and landscaping design software features a streamlined workflow. With it, you can design anything and everything with just eight powerful tools. A pool, a deck, topographic terrain, plumbing lines, construction markings and more. All accomplished with three drawing tools and five editing tools. And all eight are smart tools — like the Arc tool that maintains perfect S-curves no matter how you move or alter an object — so you can design and edit with unrivaled ease.

Design in Context with GIS

The highest-resolution aerial imagery for the highest-quality designs.

Dramatically transform your workflow with the pool landscape design software and the most accurate aerial images available. Design with high-resolution GIS surveyed terrain data, and detailed information about your client’s property. Image detail down to 3” per pixel means you can calculate square footage, measure the perimeter, and assess the outdoor living space — instantly.

Simply type in your client’s address to access the GIS data, plus five ultra-high-resolution images. The surrounding terrain is modeled for you so it’s easy to spot any potential limitations to the project before visiting the client — or even complete a design remotely without ever stepping foot onto the site.

Complex calculations, simplified.

Calculate any measurement you need in record time. With simple keystrokes, bypass the mouse and type in the precise measurements and angles you need for any shape. Select shapes in 2D to get perimeters, linear feet, or meters. Estimate gallons. Triangulate locations or find arc center points with the measure tool. And let the pool design software’s intelligent stage system account for overlapping objects and do the area calculations for you — like when a pool, spa, and deck meet and overlap.
