Hedge Properties

The properties used to modify a Hedge object are located to the right of the screen when your hedge is selected. These properties can either be adjusted right before adding the hedge to your landscape or after it has been added. Below is a description of each available property in the order that they appear in the software.




The Material property determines what type of surface the hedge will use. To change the material, click the small image that displays the current material.

Material options

The appearance of the hedge can be modified by clicking the small button that appears to the right of the material image.


The Size property determines the scale of the hedge material.


The Angle property determines the rotation angle of the hedge material.  To change the material angle, move the Angle slider or type a value in the text field.

Offset X

The Offset X property determines the hedge material’s left and right orientation. To shift the material left or right, move the Offset X slider or enter a value in the text field.

Offset Y

The Offset Y property determines the hedge material’s forward and backward orientation. To shift the material forward or backward, move the Offset Y slider or enter a value in the text field.


The Shininess property determines how glossy the material will appear. To change the appearance of the material, click the Shininess drop-down menu and select from the following options: Default, Off, Low, Medium, or High. The shininess property only affects the appearance of the material while in the 3D view.

Enable enhanced surface detail

The Enable enhanced surface detail property determines whether or not the hedge material will have increased detail when viewed up close.
