Setting Plant Growth
This option helps predict how your plants will grow over
time. Using the slider, you can adjust how much time has elapsed since your
plants were planted, up to 20 years in the future.
To set plant growth:
Click Settings > Set Plant Growth.
Set the desired growth amount and click OK.
The following example shows plant growth over a six year
The age of a plant is the sum of the plant growth and the
plant's starting age. For example, suppose your landscape has an existing oak
tree that is already 5 years old, and you set the plant growth to 6 years. The
oak tree will be displayed at its approximate size after it is 11 years old.
Note: The growth of real plants will vary based on
soil conditions, hardiness zones, species, and other factors. Consult your local
nursery for more detailed information about specific plants you're planning to
use in your landscape design.
