Adding a Fountain

Realtime Landscaping Pro comes with a large variety of pre-built fountains that you can add to your landscape designs.

To add a fountain:

1.   Click Add Fountain.

2.   Select the desired fountain by clicking the picture in the property window.

3.   Click to add the fountain.

A Tulip fountain is used in the water feature shown below.

Pillar Fountains

Do you want a water feature but space is limited? A pillar fountain may be the answer. They consist of a rock pillar (often made out of plastic or fiberglass), liner, filter, and pump. The water flows down the side of the fountain and a pump re-circulates the water back through a hole in the top. Some can even be used indoors!

Realtime Landscaping Pro provides several pillar fountains to choose from. You can use the Region, Rock Border, Edging, and other objects to complete your design. The following is an example fountain with the Region and Edging objects added to the base.

Tips:

      Fountains are similar to waterfalls, except water from a waterfall always flows in a single direction, while water from a fountain always flows straight down. See Adding a Waterfall for more information.

      To add landscaping rocks around your fountain, see Adding a Rock.

      You can scale and rotate fountains for more variety. See Scaling Objects and Rotating Objects for more information.

      To add plants around your fountains, see Adding a Plant.

      See Adding a Pond for information on how to add a pond, and Adding a Stream for information on how to add a stream.

      You can customize the materials in the fountain. See Editing Materials for details.
