Yard map multiple polygons for single zone


#1

I love the yard map feature overall. One area that would make it better is if I could draw multiple polygons for a single zone. I have drip line on both sides of my driveway and also a portion bisected by my sidewalk, but it is all one zone. Presently I can draw one giant rectangle but that overlaps with another zone and also would include a very wide driveway which impacts the calculation of square footage.

What platform are you using Yard Map on? I believe Android and iOS both work the same, and you can set it up to do what you’re talking about.

To get multiple polygons for a zone, start with the polygon on one side of your driveway. Once you’ve got that one side covered, “close” the polygon by tapping the first point you made to create the shape.

You’re now still adding polygons for the same zone, so you can head to the other side of your driveway and start drawing a new polygon and now you’ve got two polygons for that one zone.

Zach,
“Closing” the polygon was the piece I was missing. Not an obvious step in the process from the UI, but works like a champ!

Thanks!
