When it comes to designing your next landscaping project for your property in Georgia, a design rendering will make the planning process a breeze. There are two types of landscape design renderings: 2D and 3D. 2D renderings are sketches of the landscaping project that will show you the spacing of the new features and where things will go on your property. 3D design renderings, on the other hand, are fully immersive digitized images that give you a realistic view of what the end results of the project will look like. When deciding between the two types of renderings for your next project, you should keep in mind that 2D renderings are better suited for smaller projects while 3D renderings are ideal for larger projects.

What is a 2D design rendering?

2D rendering for landscape project in Atlanta, GA.

A 2D design rendering is a sketch of a landscaping project on a flat surface. The rendering will be drawn from a top-down perspective to give you a broad overview of the project. The sketch can also be in color, giving you a better idea of what the project will look like when it is finished. 2D design renderings allow you to see the spacing of the elements that you are adding, whether it is a new landscape bed with multiple plants and/or a new patio with a fire pit and a seating wall. This type of rendering will give you a straight-forward look at the plan for the project and will help you decide if you like where things are placed and how they look next to each other. If you want to change something about the project after seeing it laid out, your landscaping company can make changes to the rendering with ease!
