Navigation patterns and intent to use the elements (amenities) within a space are just as important as the aesthetics of the product itself. We focus on people who will use the site – how and when they will do so. A flexible product provides countless layout opportunities and can adapt to the site's functional goals.

LAND F/X FEATURE HIGHLIGHT: Concept MLeader

If you like our new Multileader (MLeader) plant callouts, you’ll absolutely love the Concept MLeaders we've just made live! Concept Plants, including plant mixes, now use an MLeader when called out with any of our plant labeling tools. You can customize the look of the callouts, as well as the information they include, to ensure that all projects follow the same standards.

With Concept MLeaders, you can use plant mixes in your construction documents, show individual species counts for a mix in a single area, and connect it all to a design plant schedule by including Concept Plants. It's a powerful update, ready for you to use!


Learn more about using MLeader callouts and plant mixes.
