Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to ask designers how they go about planting, do you follow a strict plan (ie, grass first then bushes, trees, etc) or plant purely by eye - try something if it works keep it, if not delete it.

I guess as long as the end result looks good it doesn't matter which way you go about it, just curious if some designers follow a work flow.

Cheers All

The object meter is a guide otherwise I’d never be done planting..... LOL.
I (mostly) do trees and rockwork first, then shrubs and plants, and grasses last.
There’s always exceptions though....  it’s a fluid process.  Towards the end I hopscotch around the course so that it keeps things even and I don’t end up with a couple barren holes toward the end because I ran out of meter....
This is what works for me, others do things differently

I seem to hopscotch around everywhere atm so I will probably work out some sort of similar workflow per hole - plnting itself I find quite tricky some holes look good whilst others look forced. practice makes perfect :)

Lighting as well makes a big difference how it looks as well.If you are making a well Routed Course with different hole directions and holes close together some holes will look better than others.
