Professional Site Design, Hardscape/softscape

Working on my personal place. A large acreage pad and need either a piece of software that can aid in the complete design, including good rendering of berms and ponds, or a pro that can lead me down the right road here.

I am a bit overwhelmed. Have been here before but since it is my own, I want to cross the Ts I guess. I have a LOT of software for CAD design but nothing tailored for this and does a poor job with ponds and such. I have seen a bunch of really cheesy software but we are working from a blank canvas here with lots of shaping to be done.

I would google "landscape design software",maybe check amazon for reviews
Better homes and gardens produces some decent software for the price.
