hi all I want to design the layout of my terrace for next year. Hopefully making it a bit less haphazard. 

I had a crazy brainwave that I could design something using my iPad.....but of course can’t find any software that does not need you to take photos of the empty space.

any ideas or experience?

    It's a question which has been asked a number of times and, sadly, nobody has come up with anything which is either free, or of a price which would suit the needs of an occasional user.

    Your ipad could take photos of the terrace - or are you away from home?

    All of the softwares that require you to take photos basically assume you are starting with a blank canvas with nothing in the way. Also they need you to be x feet await from every wall, window etc which is not an option for me.  I think I’m just going to lay it out in excel. And go from there.
