Move mountains with your design

From planters to parks, landscape architects use SketchUp to bring their ideas to life.

3D landscape design tool

Create and modify 3D terrain

Quickly turn contour lines into surfaces, drape hardscape elements onto uneven ground, and modify existing terrain. Start with 2D CAD files, 3D models, DEM data, or import your own imagery and scan data. Better yet, use SketchUp’s Geo-location tool and bring in exact terrain imagery with the click of a button.

Garden design software

Pull entourage objects from 3D Warehouse

You don’t have to model everything you need from scratch. In fact, hundreds of thousands of entourage objects — from vegetation and vehicles, to people — are available for download (for free) from SketchUp’s 3D Warehouse.

Landscape architecture in mixed reality

Present to impress

Tell a richer story with your model using animations, images, and videos. Create flyovers and walkthroughs that glide clients through your model. Clearly communicate your design vision by exporting high-quality images and videos that show variations and details. Want to impress your clients even more? Put your SketchUp model into a VR/AR headset and watch the “wow’s” roll in.
