InfiniteNIL Software ( has updated Landscaper’s Companion for Mac OS X to version 1.5. The upgrade gives users the ability to add their own plants to Landscaper’s database of over 26,000 plants.

Landscaper’s Companion was first introduced as an iOS app by Stevenson Software. Stevenson Software commissioned infiniteNIL to bring the app to the Mac. The Mac app has all the same features as the iOS version, such as a database of over 8,500 plants and over 9,000 images.

Plants can be browsed by 16 categories, marked as favorites, and searched for based on their name, color, type, sun, water, grow rate, size, and other characteristics. Most plants include cultivation information, common uses, and potential problems they may have. Users can add their own notes and images to each plant.

Landscaper’s Companion requires Mac OS X 10.7 or higher. It costs US$34.99 and is available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Reference or Lifestyle category.
