LANDMARK PART 3
Use your favourite plants to create plant mixes with the Landscape area tool and drape them across your site models. Create a paving paradise with Hardscapes for your hard landscaping. Automatically align your hardscapes in complex paving situations. These two tools use components to help with detailing, reporting, and cut and fill calculations.
Find and place Site Furniture from the Vectorworks Libraries as well as learn how to create your own custom objects!
