Some 18 years ago, realising that technology was moving forward and with an increasing need to receive and supply data digitally, New Leaf Studio came to the conclusion that not only was CAD software important, but dedicated landscape design software was essential.

" We have used KeySCAPE as our sole office CAD software from the outset so we use KeySCAPE on every project."

When choosing CAD software, the softworks functions were an important factor to consider. KeySCAPE allows us to produce planting plans efficiently and to automatically generate schedules, with the capacity to then easily make amendments with changes automatically carrying through to the schedule. 

The transition to KeySCAPE from our old paper drawing process enabled:

1) Greater efficiency of working, especially in producing planting plans
and outputting schedules

2) Greatly improved efficiency when making revisions to drawings

3) Better exchange of information between disciplines, enabling
improved co-ordination, identification of potential conflicts, and resolution
of problems before work begins on site

4) Use of colour in drawings that would’ve been too time consuming to
produce and too costly to reproduce before

5) A far greater degree of accuracy that helps highlight potential "appearance and fit" issues



KeySCAPE offers a single landscape design software solution that takes you from concept through detailed design and contract documentation and beyond. Enhanced utilities and presentation options allow you to quickly create and modify design proposals to meet the changing requirements of clients. Our flexible design approach allows you to customise the system and manage processes to streamline your workflows.
