Landscaping is the means through which players modify the terrain and environment in Jurassic World Evolution. Landscaping was expanded with Update 1.8 through the addition of terrain painting, new nature brushes, and other small changes to the system, such as toggle-able contour lines. A sand painting tool was added to Isla Nublar with Update 1.8.3.
Landscaping is divided into 4 different methods that modify different elements of the environment and terrain, those being nature, water, terrain, and painting tools. Each general tool has a series of brushes available within their given tool menu, a removal brush, and the ability to choose from 3 different sized radiuses within which a given brush will be used.
The painting tool brushes available through landscaping vary depending on the island.
The Nature Tool includes a variety of foliage brushes that allow different types of foliage to be painted across the terrain. The ability to paint with the foliage brushes across sand, dirt, shale, and rock terrain is severely limited compared to grass terrain.
