hello!
I'm using Home and landscape design professional version 21 on a PC with windows 10.
My home includes a garage in the basement. How do you design an entry with a slope to access de garage? I tried retaining walls, pathway/driveway, edging and topography lines options from landscape menu but then all the rest of the ground become accidented.
Also, my house is a townhouse having other townhouses bordering it on both sides. Is there a way to define semi-detached walls? And the driveway is shared with my right neighbor so one side of my driveway is not constrained. Is there a way to identified all this? If not, I can leave with identifying my home as a bungalow.
Thanks in advance for your help.
P.s. it is the first time I use a forum entry and I am not a perfectly bilingual person.

You can use the slope tool (Landscape Tab)

You can identify the different type of walls or driveways in your plan using the elements of the Draw Style Tab (User Guide - Page 101)

Don't worry! ThumpUp

Punch, as any program, has a learning curve. The best way to learn the program, IMO, is practice + practice + practice => Read and follow the manual (this is important), see the videos => In order to get started, try to create elements or a simple plan not related with your project, so you will become familiar with the commands and how to manage the different components and solutions.

If you are interested, my Fast & Easy eBook series includes Rapide & Facile Séries- Créez votre projet 3D en 8 étapes rapides et faciles Learn how to create your project in 8 Fast and Easy Steps. Start with a draft and follow the process step by step, to get a fully furnished project. Includes the finished PRO file used in the eBook that you can check as you read.
This particular eBook is in French and is available also in English.
As you can see in the image below, it includes how to create slopes in the lot.
