Freeware garden and deck design software?
July 19, 2013 9:03 AM   Subscribe

The parents are wanting to redesign the deck and garden. They found a few pieces of software but nothing yet that allows them to upload a photo and paste 3d mock-ups of a plan onto the photo. If that isn't something that's reliably done (out of my depth here), perhaps just a great piece of free-ware for deck and garden design? I guess they could 'design' in the existing garden space prior to the deck design. Thanks!

Google SketchUp will do this. There are some videos on YouTube you can watch to see how it works, search for SketchUp Match Photo.

Seconding SketchUp. It's great for this kind of thing.
