Click a surface in the object menu, for example "Lawn". Click where the first corner of the surface should be in the garden. Then click where the second corner should be — a line should appear between point 1 and point 2.

You can always adjust the position and size of the surface later by clicking the corners and moving them, adding more corners or creating curved surfaces.

Select the object you would like to delete and click the dustbin icon. Alternatively, you can select the object and press the "Delete" key on your keyboard.
