Default Properties

Default properties are the standard options for an object that are automatically set. These default properties can be changed immediately before adding an object to your design or after the object has been added.

Note that when the default properties are changed is important. If the changes are made before an object is added to your design, then the software will remember those changes and apply them to any other similar objects you add. For example, if you click the Add Deck button, change the default wood material to another color, then add the deck to your landscape, you will find that the change of wood material is remembered when placing another deck. This effectively means that you have changed the default properties for that object in your current landscape.

When you begin a new landscape design, all default properties are reset to their original values.
