Free Landscape Design Software

Can't edit things like wall height. Can't set the scale. Can't rotate furniture. And most annoying of all - you can't erase your mistakes! Accidently draw a wrong wall? Too bad. Put the window in the wrong spot? You're screwed! Really? A total, frustrating waste of time.

Summary

Needs work. Lots of work!

Really simple, and probably inspired by, "The Sims" game house editor - But the game offers, from version 1, grid-snap and much more building / furniture options.

Too simple, immature product. Lacks grid/snap or any other way of measurement, and offers just a few, very few objects to place in your project.

All accounted for, this program lacks the basics, but at least don't push down our throats any adware, toolbar or creepy Windows compatibility problem.
