Creating Accurate Landscape Site Plans using Overhead CAD images

Please Note: CAD is not our primary focus; instead, we specialize in visual design. We provide a small amount of CAD images for interested customers.

Overhead CAD is a powerful tool that can be used to create accurate site plans for landscape design. Here are the steps you can follow:

  1. Set up the drawing: Start by setting up the drawing with the appropriate units and scale. This will ensure that your site plan is accurately represented.
  2. Import the base map: Import a base map or survey data of the site into your Overhead Overhead CAD drawing. This will provide the foundation for your landscape design.
  3. Draw the site elements: Use Overhead CAD images to draw the various elements of your landscape design, such as buildings, paths, vegetation, and water features. Pay attention to accuracy and scale as you create these elements.
  4. Annotate the site plan: Add text, labels, and dimensions to your site plan to provide important information about the design. This can include plant names, sizes, and distances between various elements.
  5. Add the title block and border: Include a title block and border in your site plan to provide a professional finishing touch. This will typically include the project name, date, and any necessary company information.
  6. Plot the site plan: Once you have completed your site plan design, you can plot it to a physical sheet of paper or create digital copies for sharing or printing. This will allow you to present your design to clients or contractors.
  7. Additional considerations: In addition to the main steps outlined above, there are a few other things to consider when creating accurate landscape site plans with Overhead CAD. These include using layers to organize your drawing, utilizing blocks for repetitive elements, and incorporating site analysis data into your design.By following these steps and utilizing the features of Overhead CAD, you can create precise and visually appealing site plans for landscape design.
