Past Graduate's Landscape Plan

Part of what makes our online course so distinctive within the industry is the unique set of 285+ pre-built CAD blocks and symbols.

These drag-and-drop symbols allow landscape professionals to design faster with turn-key solutions for AutoCAD.

When finished with this course, you will have:

Optimized Settings

Not only can you start designing immediately with the pre-built settings supplied in this course for AutoCAD, but use these optimized settings for future landscape design projects that have taken 10+ years to develop.

Increased Productivity

In our course, we eliminate 50% of the AutoCAD interface so you can concentrate and focus your attention on the landscape. By doing this, you will save twice the time than trying to learn the software in its entirety, on your own.

Library of 280+ CAD Symbols

AutoCAD does not come equipped with pre-built CAD symbols, which is why we built over 280+ landscape components for introductory designers to AutoCAD to drag-and-drop and speed-up the design process for you.


Lifetime Course Access

We know landscape designers are busy individuals which is why there is lifetime course access, making it easier and less stressful to learn a completely new software in a short amount of time.

About the Instructor

I’m Jordan – founder of The Landscape Library.

I believe great landscape architecture emerges when the natural character of any environment is complimented with a carefully curated space that brings natural life, functionality and creativity to those who view and occupy the space.

After leaving Bjarke Ingels Group in 2020, I freelanced for award winning and upscale landscape design professionals in the United States using AutoCAD as my primary 2D software to develop plans, sections and renderings for client’s. Regardless of the geographic location, I noticed businesses, employees and designers not exploiting software’s to their full capability- ultimately slowing down the process and not taking advantage of efficiency in software.

In 2021, shortly after realizing this, I founded The Landscape Library to bridge the gap between small and large businesses by creating an online platform that provides trainings, pre-built digital tools, resources and media for landscape designers.

AutoCAD (the software) is not included with the course purchase.

We highly recommend purchasing AutoCAD LT, a more cost-effective version of regular AutoCAD without 3D capabilities. Here is a link to view AutoCAD LT by AutoDesk.

All trainings were recorded on Windows PC, however, throughout the trainings, shortcuts for Mac are announced and an additional eBook outlining the minor differences between systems is supplied in PDF format.

Regardless of PC or Mac, the (24) AutoCAD commands taught in this course do not change, only shortcuts are different (ie: Command + C vs. CTRL + C for COPY).

The course is taught all online and is accessible 24/7 through our course dashboard. Upon purchasing the course, you will be given login details at which you can sign into the course dashboard and begin learning how to use AutoCAD for Landscape Design immediately. 

The 280+ CAD Landscape Library is sent to you immediately upon purchase via email. Additionally, these CAD Libraries are also pre-loaded in your course dashboard with corresponding material.
