Getting the landscape right is a crucial element of a successful 3d rendering project, and is one that can make the difference between a mediocre image and a show stopping one. Here at NoTriangle, we are fully aware of the important role of landscaping, and put lots of effort and attention into how the landscape and surrounding area of a development will be shown in a rendering project. That being said, there are certain types of project that require higher levels of detail to landscaping elements, especially if you’re a landscape designer looking to get approval on your design, or for a developer who needs to show that a development will successfully fit into the local environment to convince local boards and councils to approve your project.
How We Work With Your Landscape Design Rendering Projects
All that we need from your end to create a photorealistic quality landscape 3d rendering are high quality and detailed landscape plans, as well as any necessary references you deem necessary for us to understand certain design elements you’re trying to convey. Whether these are paths, water bodies or rockeries, we can recreate all of these in a landscape plan rendering at a top quality level. We can take this level of detail even further if necessary, if you have specific requirements that are important for us to follow. If you need us to make sure that a hedge box is manicured in a certain way, or that a flower bed needs to be arranged a certain way, then you can count on us to meet these specific requirements.
If your landscape requirements aren’t as strict and you would like to get some creative input from our end, this is also possible, as we have a trained team of architects with landscape experience who can use their creative abilities to determine how certain details should look in order to maximize the potential of the landscape architecture plan rendering. Either of these routes are possible, and the direction we decide to go in will be determined considering your needs during the kick off process of your project.
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.
