Event details

Register for our upcoming 4-part Vectorworks Landmark training course, March 30 - April 20 2022.

Start your project by familiarising yourself with your file organisation and importing your survey.

Complete the survey by adding in a simple ground, existing trees, and fences. Once you have your existing survey, perform a shadow analysis to determine the best planting locations in your design. Then it's time for the star of the show - the Vectorworks Plant tool!
