In this session we looked at the Landscape Area tool. The Landscape Area tool is extremely useful when you are trying to plant large areas, if you try and create a budget plan, or if you trying to create a landscape concept plan. The tool has several options we looked at these options in this section.

Topics covered:

  • what is the Landscape Area
  • using shapes to create Landscape Areas
  • drawing shapes using Add Surface
  • creating a Landscape Area using Create Objects from Shapes…
