Adding Edging

Edging adds a nice border around your flower beds, paths, and other areas of your landscape. You can easily adjust the size and shape of your edging. Realtime Landscaping Photo includes a large variety of edging materials, including rock, stone, brick, and marble.

To add edging:

1.   Click Add Edging.

2.   Draw the edging’s outline by clicking to add points. Press Backspace to remove the last point. Press Esc to cancel.

3.   Click the starting point to close the edging. Or, for edging that remains open instead of closed, right-click at the last point.

Once you have added your edging, you can easily adjust its shape. See Editing Points for details.

Edging was used for the flower bed in the following landscape design.

Controlling the Render Order

When working with overlapping objects, you can control which ones are rendered first. For example, you can use this to ensure your edging appears on top of the lawn. See Controlling the Render Order for details.

Tips:

      For more control over the shape of your edging, you can easily add more points. See Inserting & Deleting Points for more information.

      You can also add retaining walls using the Retaining Wall object.
