The purpose of this paper is to present computeraided design strategies and processes for landscape design. Based on the software-SketchUp, our work explored the interaction relations between the concept and final result, outlined the relationship of application software and the integrated landscape design process model. According to the practice of domestic landscape industry,this article analyzes the application of SketchUp-aided design in integrating the characteristics of landscape design. The results clarified the features, approaches and procedure of landscape design where SketchUp is applied. Based on these, our work offered SketchUp-oriented landscape design strategies and processes, and presented a real design cases. These strategies and processes are very useful for enhancing designers' creative performances as well as improving work efficiency of landscape design.
