As a homeowner you want to create an amazing outdoor space for your home. You have some ideas, and you want to bring them to life. Wouldn't you love a tool that will let you create the designs, just with your phone?
DreamzAR app is precisely created to help you visualize your dreams. Why just imagine when you can see the design, or share it with your landscaping pro?
Let's see how you can use DreamzAR app.
Have a landscaping project in mind?
If you're mulling over an idea, or wish to share your idea with your landscaping pro, you now have a tool to visualize that idea. That's why we built DreamzAR App. To solve one specific problem for homeowners - to help them visualize their own ideas for their home's outdoor space.
With DreamzAR you can visualize multiple ideas (save them as projects), iterate over the design, pick the one that you like and share it with your landscaping pro or just get started if you plan to do it yourself. It's a virtual try-on tool, for landscaping.
