How does the object menu work?

The objects menu is where you find all objects that you can use to draw and plan your garden with.

You can find all surfaces under "Land". This allows you to draw different shapes of lawn, flower bed, gravel or water. There is also a large selection of items that can be added to your garden, for example houses, plants and furniture. Drag and drop items to position the items in your drawing — you can also change the size or position of the item using drag and drop.

The objects are sorted into categories and sub categories to make it easier for you to find them.
