For Instance you have created a package and it contains xyz node in content section and this package is getting installed at another umbraco at that time if you are adding or getting node property then you don’t know exactly how to get there property and set there value. In this situation we will start looking from root node in content section which id we all know  Root node id = -1  and stop until we find our node for which we are looking. For doing so you have to run below code.

First Reference: umbraco.NodeFactory;

// -1 is Node id for root.
Node node = new Node(-1);
int nodeId = 0;
int nodeTemplate = 0;
string nodeName ="xyz";
foreach (Node childNode in node.Children)
    var child = childNode;
    if (child.Name == nodeName)
        nodeId = child.Id;
        nodeTemplate = child.template;
Document doc = new Document(nodeId);

// First Tell umbraco to  refresh node cache for geting uncahed value.

// Retrive content/node property value.
var HederTitle = Convert.ToString(doc.getProperty("HederTitle").Value);
