What People are Saying

...we were able to efficiently step in with KeySCAPE and create the smart, BIM-compliant objects that would streamline this redesign and any future revisions

KeySCAPE Highlights

  • Start with a customizable database of over 8000 plants, import or create preferred plant lists specific to your region or project type. Dynamic planting callouts and schedules ensure your drawing is always up to date.
  • Object libraries contain typical hardscape elements such as benches, bollards and various site furniture. Customize your database with commonly used blocks or data from your preferred manufacturers
  • Layout detailed paving areas, edging and pathways with accurate area and unit takeoff. Visualize actual brick, block or modular paving patterns with callouts and schedules that update as you design.
  • Input and annotate property lines from legal descriptions, layout building footprints, sports fields, golf courses, parking lots and other site elements through a selection of site tools.
  • Create ground models direct from any 3D data and analyze your site for elevation, slope and aspect. Calculate volumes and optimize your site design to balance cut and fill.
  • Share planting designs with collaborators using Revit using our free Revit Plugin. Exchange surface models with many design platforms (i.e. Civil 3d, Carlson, Revit) through the open LandXML format. Export BIM planting design data to CSV, SHP or IFC formats.
