How do you create the surrounding area?
We can create the surrounding area of a project in different ways depending on your budget, timeline and needs. The first route for us is to study the local area and then use vegetation from our library to create a landscape setting matching the local environment. Our team is well trained in creating any type of vegetation regardless of whether these are mediterranean looking plants in California, bushes and dunes in the Hamptons, or tall coniferous Canadian trees. If you need an exact replica of the property’s surroundings in your landscape rendering, then we can create an exact copy in 3d, but this can be a more costly route than creating a more generic surrounding that matches the local area. As a way around this, we suggest the option discussed below.
This 2nd, and optimal route that we can take with creating a surrounding area in 3D is to blend the 3D Rendering with photos of the surrounding area. Not only is this the least time consuming option, but it is also the least costly. The simplest route for us to take is to blend a 3d landscape rendering with a photo from google earth or street view, but our personal recommendation is to get high quality photos of a site to help maximize levels of photorealism when blended in with the rendering. If you need an aerial shot, then drone shots are ideal. We can blend renderings with photos that show any type of landscape, whether these are mountains, lakes, beaches or an urban setting. If you are concerned about accuracy and quality when it comes to landscape architecture visualization, then you are in the right hands, and if you have any other questions please contact our consultant to discuss your project so we can select the best approach.
