Adding a Patio

Realtime Landscaping Pro makes it easy to build patios of any shape and size. Patios are especially useful on sloping and uneven terrain because of the flat building surface they provide. A wide variety of patio materials is included, such as brick, stone, flagstone, concrete, and more.

To add a patio:

1.   Click Add Patio.

2.   Draw the patio's outline by clicking to add points. Press Backspace to remove the last point. Press Esc to cancel.

3.   Click the starting point to close the outline. Or, right-click to automatically join the last point to the first.
