[prMac.com] Mount Pleasant, South Carolina - Spring is just around the corner, and developer Home Revivals would like to remind do-it-yourselfers and professional landscapers alike that now is the time to begin planning for those big landscaping projects. They also believe there is simply no better tool available to help users visualize their projects than iScape 2.5.3, their popular virtual landscaping design app developed for iOS and Android devices. Home Revivals is excited to announce that it has committed to hiring additional team members for iScape, and will be announcing a number of important new features for the app very soon.
iScape's innovative technology offers an easy way for users to create and view their landscaping vision before the first bush is planted, or the first dollar is spent. Using their device's built-in camera, anyone can either take a photo of the area they wish to landscape, or use any photo they already have stored on their device. Then, using iScape's built-in editing tools and handy landscaping item library, they can add or replace ground cover, including grass, mulch, paving, and more. The ability to add flowers, trees, bushes, walkways, water features, walls, decks, pools, and more to the virtual landscape are all just a few taps away, easily accessibly from iScape's vast library of landscaping and construction features.
"Even though snow still covers the ground in many areas of the country, it's never too early to begin planning your spring landscaping," says Patrick Pozzuto, creator of iScape. "Our app allows users to get a headstart on planning for the spring thaw. iScape allows them to envision a fresh, new, spring landscape design for their home, even if there is still a foot of snow on the ground."
The app allows users to easily arrange landscaping features offering the ability to delete, flip, duplicate and arrange layers in any order, making it easy to create the perfect outdoor environment. Once the design is perfect, users can easily save and print it, or even share it with others via Facebook, or email. These handy features make it easy for any amateur or professional landscaper to communicate their vision, in order to prevent miscommunication and cost overruns.
Amateur landscapers will appreciate iScape's ability to help them decide exactly what they need to buy to complete their vision, offering a convenient list of the items to be included in a layout, making it a breeze to shop for everything they need at the local gardening or home improvement store. Professionals will appreciate the ability to show their customers exactly what the finished project will look like, eliminating misunderstandings, delays, and cost overruns.

iScape's easy learning curve makes it simple enough to use for the first time do-it-yourselfer, yet the app's powerful features also make it the perfect tool for use by professional landscapers and developers. Any user will find the app is the perfect way to envision and share landscape designs, offering the flexibility to make immediate design changes, and quickly view exactly what a project will look like when it is complete.
"As a company, we have one objective, to help make the world a more beautiful place. We are continually working to improve iScape, based on the feedback from our customers," shares Pozzuto. "We are currently expanding our development team in order to take the app to a whole new level. Our users haven't been shy about telling us how they use the app, and what features they'd like to see added to it in the future. We're excited about the path we're on, and we will continue to improve iScape until it is the industry standard that other app developers will aspire to."
