Hi. It is not possible as a feature, the only way I have found is to use a shape. In this case Block-2. You have to build the shapes "around" the house, as the house foundation will not cut a hole in the shape. Thus the block will be visible inside the house. It is a little bit fiddly, but I think it is the only way. Let's hope they will implement a landscaping tool in the future.

This is what you should do.
1. Select a shape
2. Unlock the padlock so you can change the size of the object.
3. Uncheck Maintain asp. ratio.
4. Uncheck Glue by, so you can elevate the shape if necessary.
5. As an option you can click the type & representation tab to rotate and angle the block if you need to.
Be aware that only a few shapes can be edited by type and representation.

As you can see from picture nr. 2, you can use your imagination and use sphere, cylinder and other shapes.

If you are familiar with SketchUp, there is a much more complicated way:
