Design with iScape ft. Story Martin

Around the globe, more than five million designs have been created using iScape, helping homeowners and industry pros save time, money, and energy. iScape brings the user’s vision to life through thousands of plants, hardscapes and outdoor living elements, virtually placed within the app. City dwellers, suburbanites, rural residents, businesses, college and university horticulture departments, school and community gardens, facilities managers, park districts and municipalities – all will find iScape remarkably useful for their diverse needs.

And we want to share your work! This is Story Martin's share of experience and designs.

How has iScape fostered your inspiration and creative side?

I have designed my front entrance for our driveway.  I have created flower beds that weren’t part of the original design and filled the flower beds that were part of the original design.  Looking forward to designing a garden for my sons and I to care for all summer.  And after sharing my designs & new found discovery of possibly the greatest app ever on my social media, I am designing friends & family flower beds too.

How much time do you think iScape has saved you in designing different landscapes?  

Ohhh tons. I have all these different ideas and it's nice to be able to put them to paper, or app, so to speak, and see them come to life.  And then redo it and see which I like better.

Would you be interested in using the Hire A Designer feature to find the perfect landscape professional to help make your landscape dream real for future outdoor projects?

Well, we currently have a landscape professional that we are very pleased with. However I would not be opposed for future use.

How would you describe iScape to other people, like friends or family?

The best kept secret you can’t live without.

What is your favorite feature on iScape and why?

My favorite feature is that all the different trees, shrubs, and plants tell you not only the zoning but whether it does best in sun, shade, or partial. It also tells you the height and width.

How did you find out about iScape?

I actually googled landscape design software and ran across it!

How does iScape compare to other landscape/design resources you’ve used before?

I’ve never used any other. Just got lucky the first time!

What would you like to see next from iScape?

I would love for it to be available on not only iOS systems, but available to all devices including my touchscreen dell computer.
