Adding a Fence

Fences are easy to add in Realtime Landscaping, and a large variety of fence styles are available. Additionally, you can create your own fence styles to achieve the perfect design.

To add a fence:

2.   Draw the outline of the fence by clicking the left mouse button to add points. Press the Backspace key to remove the last point added, and press the Esc key to cancel. If you would like to input the distance and angle manually, place at least one point and then press Enter.

3.   To finish drawing the fence, right-click to place the last point.
