Adding a Lot Boundary
The Lot Boundary tool can be used as a property line as
well as a tool to section off specific areas of your landscape design. For
example, one Lot Boundary could be used to section off a pond, another for a
swimming pool, and yet another for the property line. Lot boundaries serve as
guides and do not restrict your design in any way.
To add a property line or other lot boundary:
Click the Add Lot Boundary button, which is found near the
top of the screen under the Utilities tab.
Draw the lot boundary by clicking the left mouse button to add points. Press the
Backspace key to remove the last point added, or press the Esc key
to cancel. To enter a survey bearing, place at least one point and then press
the Enter key. See Entering Angle
and Distance for details.
To finish drawing the lot boundary, place the last point on top of the first
point. Alternately, right-click to place the last point.
boundaries can be added in either the Plan view or the Perspective view, but are
easiest to create in the Plan view.
Lot Boundary tool is similar to the Linear
Dimension and 3D Dimension tools.
default style for a lot boundary is a dashed brown line, but this can be changed
if desired. For example, a blue lot boundary could be used for water features,
and a green lot boundary for garden designs.
boundaries do not appear during Realtime Walkthroughs.
