Plants images not recognising Hardscape.


Hi. Can anyone tell me if there is a workaround to set plant images on the surface of Hardscape. I have to go to the front view of a border image and set each plant to the surface when I have a sloped border like my current one. I am told this cannot be done within Landscape so I would appreciate it if there is an answer.

Many thanks

Is your hardscape part of the site model?  If so, the "send to surface command" will work.

Hi, as plants are not supposed to grow on hardscape, they don't react on them. The only time I can see it being of use is if you have a gravel garden and you're using the hardscape to create the gravel. But as Jeff referred to, if the hardscape is part of a site model, the plants would automatically look for the site model and adjust to its level, both single plants and landscape areas.

Can you explain in what situation you'd like to have the plants to grow out of the hardscape? Are you using the hardscape to create growing medium volumes?
