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
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.
