Free 3D online garden planners
There are not many free online 3D garden planners available, but for you, we have found them! Three-dimensional planners allow you to view your design as it will look in reality rather than as a 'flat' rendition, although often you will put the plan together in a 2D view, before switching to a 3D view to see what it will look like, because rendering the design in 3D takes a lot of memory and will slow the software down significantly. If you prefer to work in a downloadable software planner that can be used offline, you should check our collection of garden planner downloads.
