Choose which aspect of landscaping you're interested in:
Take a couple minutes to sketch out the building you want to landscape to better visualize how your landscaping changes will work:
Step 1: Use Building Wizard in the File menu to create a structure of the approximate size, height and shape of the one you are landscaping. (30-45 seconds)
Step 2: Add Materials to structure walls similar to buildings. (60 seconds)
Use the floor tool to draw in the area where the lawn will go in your design. There are several types of grass you can drag in . Hold the alt key in when dragging to apply material to all sides.
Instead of floors this time, we'll use materials to add planters and apply dirt materials from the directory.
Bushes and trees are dragged in from the directory like furniture. You can resizes trees and bushes by holding in the alt or alt-shift keys and dragging them - or right-clicking them and choose "Set Dimensions..."
Choose a fence type from the Build>Fence menu and draw it in your plan. You may replace the fence type with other fences and posts you drag in from the Fence directory. Wood materials and colors can be added to the fences as well.
Choose "Move Entire Plan" from the
Edit menu to move everything in the plan. Enter the distance you want
to move the plan and click the appropriate arrows.
