Been struggling a bit today with getting the hang of Sketchup. But have made some progress.
I’ve marked out a lawn on the default layer using many arcs and a straight line. But I cannot make it separate from the rest of the garden. I want to ultimately make it look like grass, and the surrounding beds look like soil or chipped bark.
Thanks Geo. That makes a lot of sense. I ended up trying that out of a bit of lateral thinking. But then I found out what I think caused the problem. The line defining the lawn edge imperceptibly was not closed. where the 2 ends should have met, they’d gotten mixed up with some steps and were at different elevations and did not meet. I think I get the difference between layers, groups, and components. I have to say, I think I’ve had enough for one day - been at it nearly 10 hours!
Many thank yous for all your help Another long day, and I might be able to make something that is not too shabby… Maybe!
