Placing plants by array

Question

I would like to be able to dictate how plants align when using the place plants by rectangle/triangulate array tool. Most of the time the plants do not align properly such as against a curb making the tool worthless.

what if you rotate the plan view before you place the plants? of course this could all be undone if you change anything after you go back to top/plan view.

If the beds are rectangular, you can rotate the plan prior to placing each bed. The orientation will be maintained when you return to top/plan view unless (as pointed out above) you change the plants. If your beds are irregular polygons or curves, the only options I can think of is to use the landscape area tool, or place them manually.

if the planting beds are not all the same orientation, rotate the view for each area. i know it's slow, it would be better if the tool had a option to base the setting out on the first side of the polygon
