Grassland Specification and Annotation

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


I was wondering how you create, specify,  annotate and schedule grassed areas in Landmark?


I did this for the first time recently and I am not that happy with the workflow I came up with.


I created a species for each grass mix with category such as Lawn, Turf, Meadow etc.

I created a Data Tag that return the mix name and the area.

I needed to figure out how to pick it up by the schedule. 

In defined the Criteria as Type = Landscape Area and various names (criterium Name). To schedule the total areas per each grassland type I set the column criteria to Record; Landscape Area; Area. I ticked the Sum Values box.


Is there an easier way to do it?

Do I need to actually create species for these areas? I thought that I could filter for Polygons or closed Polylines, but couldn't figure out how to categorise them or name them.


I would love to hear how you do it or how you think it would be easier to do it.

I generally create a custom record format for native seed mixes then use that info in the worksheet. These RF's can be attached to a Landscape area. I have found this to be the most convenient and fastest with the best results.

@bgoff, thanks for sharing your method. I was thinking about using Records as well. haven't explored that functionality yet though.

What do you then use as planting within those Landscape Areas - generic plant styles as placeholders?
