The landscape of your dreams.
Introducing the tool to help you build it.
Tap-and-drag functionality lets you design your entire property, not just your veggie garden, with hundreds of useful and fun elements, from trees to pools to paths to chicken coops.
We created the Home Outside landscape design app as an easy-to-use alternative to highly technical CAD-type design programs—now you don’t even need drawing skills to make beautiful landscape designs! It’s an intuitive tap-and-drag app with over 700 hand-drawn elements that homeowners and design professionals can use to create a property plan or garden layout.
With thirty-three palettes of landscape elements, use a wide variety of plan-view icons to represent your house, patios, plants, furniture, activities, etc.
Take or import a photo from your device to use as your design background (useful for importing a photo of your property plan.)
Plot your property using the Map tool and use it as a base for your design. Your Map image is imported with coordinating scale and north arrow.
Use the margin rulers to guide you in making everything the size you want it to be. Turn on or off and select feet or meters in Settings.
The Events palette seat counter keeps track of the number of seats you’ve placed for your guests when planning events.
Organize your design with Layers functionality. Lock/unlock and make them visible or invisible. Reorder and rename layers to suit.
Add a layer of color with the Sketch tool. Sketch in 15 colors with adjustable line weight and opacity for drawing solid lines or a wash of color.
Add text notes with numbered tags to explain features, specify individual plants, and keep track of details. Use in light or dark mode.
Tap and Drag
Simple tap-and-drag functionality. Move, resize, rotate, duplicate, flip, group/ungroup, zoom, undo/redo to get it just right.
