Dave Petrosky, PLA, ASLA is the managing director, and owner of our company. He is a professional landscape architect with the internationally recognized architecture and engineering firm of L. Robert Kimball, a CDI Company. He has also been a member of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA) since 1991.
He says, “Back in 1994, after many hours of struggling with the creation of landscape designs and plant schedules using AutoCAD software, I realized that there had to be a better way. Ultimately, this is what prompted me to invest in the creation and development of EZ-Plant Software, Inc.
I solicited the assistance of elite AutoCad (Autodesk) technical development specialists and a University Professor of Landscape Architecture horticutural expert to assist in the preparation of the extensive and comprehensive database of plants and interjected his own experiences and ideas with practicality, sustainability and ingenuity. The plants, listed in Imperial, contains identification and listings of sustainable plants, native and regional locations, drought tolerant plants, hardiness zones, and cultural information like mature heights and plant spread. We also added plants that attract birds, are Fire resistant, Drought Resistant, Deer Resistant, Invasive and Salt Tolerant plants within our Excel Spread Sheet as fingertip design tools. Of course plant costs and installation fees for construction can quickly be tabulated using this simple- to- use program.
|Although I get tremendous benefits from using EZ-Plant for my own work, it is the enjoyment of helping other people create their landscape designs with a tool that produces quick, easy-to-read installation plans that has made my life’s work a sincere satisfaction.” He has used the EZ-Plant Software system preparing hundreds of landscape design projects over the past 23 plus years throughout many areas of the USA and abroad.|
