Setting Plant Growth
The Plant Growth dialog is used to age the plants in
your landscape design in order to predict how the plants will grow over time.
The plant growth can be set to any value between 0 and 20 years.
To set plant growth:
Click Settings and Set Plant Growth.
Move the Growth Amount slider to the desired age and then click the OK
The picture below shows a landscape design with the plant
growth set to 2 years and 3 years.
The total age of each plant is the sum of the plant growth
setting and the plant’s starting age. For example, if your landscape design has
an existing Maple tree that is already 6 years old, and the plant growth is set
to 4 years, then the Maple tree will be displayed at its approximate 10 year old
Note: The plant size is estimated based on plant growth
formulas, the plant’s mature age, and the plant’s mature height. Since other
factors influence growth, such as soil conditions and climate, it is recommended
to contact your local nursery for more exact sizing information.
