Fetch-A-Sketch features work from a variety of designers, with new artists added each month. The first company featured is The Green Scene, an award winning California-based outdoor design firm. Included are hundreds of drawings from The Green Scene's top designer Scott Cohen, whose work has been featured on Home and Garden Television, in Better Homes and Gardens, and numerous other national media. "The initial library includes about five hundred drawings that are all of my design," says Cohen. "These are the same renderings I've used on programs like HGTV's Landscaper's Challenge, Designing for the Sexes, Big Splash, Property Buzz, and Get Out, Way Out! We see this as a way to share some of our design secrets with others."
Contractors and homeowners who use Fetch-A-Sketch.com can be confident that the plans they select are expertly designed. Before being added to the site, new drawings undergo an approval process to ensure that only top quality work is featured. "Not only is this an inspirational design tool for homeowners and professionals," says Cohen, "it's also a fantastic way for clients and contractors to communicate their ideas to each other."

Drawings can be downloaded for printing in home or office or can be purchased and professionally mounted in poster size. Fetch-A-Sketch promises to give designers, contractors, and homeowners the tools they need to create stunning landscape designs.
