Adding a Hedge

The Hedge object is a fast way to add realistic hedges to your landscape design. You just draw a line indicating where the hedge should go, and Realtime Landscaping Architect does the rest.

To add a hedge:

1.   Click Add Hedge.

2.   Draw a line by clicking to add points. Press Backspace to remove the last point. Press Esc to cancel.

3.   Right-click at the last point when done.

The following example uses two hedges to line the walkway:

 

Customizing the Plan View

Hedges can have a unique appearance in the plan view. This is useful, for example, when you want the plan view to have a hand-drawn look. To do this, check the Custom appearance in each view option. Two tabs will appear: Plan and Perspective. These allow you to customize how the hedge appears in each view. Uncheck the option if you want the hedge to use the same material in both views. You can change this option at any time.

Tips:

      Adding a hedge is easiest in the plan view.

      If you are adding a hedge to a driveway, patio, or other geometric shape, make sure grid-snap is enabled, or it will be difficult to add your hedge using exact dimensions. See Snap Settings for more information.

      For more control over the shape of your hedge, you can easily add more points. See Inserting & Deleting Points for more information.
