summary In this article we want to present our experiences with greenery designing and possibilities of presentation such designs using CAD programs. Architectural design is more than only building - we always try to show how it is connected with surrounding. Greenery is one of the most important element of space, it creates environment, CAD programs gives us a lot of possibilities for presentations of architectural designs, but they are very limited in as to showing greenery. The very useful thing in computer aided landscaping is the plant specifier and the simulator of plants growth, You can estimate number of trees used for design and shades of tree crowns and quickly correct the plan to avoid effect of shading the windows or other places. CAD programs of the international range are not very adequate to plants selection, because the plants in database are not suitable for polish climate. For example, LANDCADD"s Plant Specifier contain information about more than 1000 plants of different climate zones from all over the world (trees, shrubs and flowers.), but in Poland we use commonly about 1500 of only trees and shrubs, the number of flowers is even bigger, so this specifier seems to be completely inadequate to our country. As to visual presentations of plants in design they are to simple to express the diversity of plant species and their shapes. There are no possibilities for common computers to process such great number of data to create natural outlook of designed trees.
