Take the Land F/X Planting Challenges (Land F/X Trainer)

Welcome to the Land F/X Planting Challenge. Each of our Planting, Irrigation, and Details challenges is an essential step in learning or designing with our software.


Our Planting tools give you everything you need for creating a planting design, from building your palette to placing and labeling plants, checking for errors, calculating plant quantities and placing schedules, turning your plan into a presentation, and customizing everything to do with planting. The planting tools are available as buttons on our F/X Planting ribbon, pictured below.


This article includes the same resources available in the Land F/X Planting Challenge you can access from CAD using the LANDFX command. Want to learn the software at your own pace? Read on to get started with the Land F/X Planting Challenge.
