Leafy Bush Tutorial

A short tutorial on a type of leafy bush that I use quite often when building landscapes. It’s quite simple and cheap, but looks quite nice and have an organic curve to it 🙂 It can also be built to different heights for variation, and the top can be either rounded or pointed, depending on…
