I like to apply Woodland Scenics (WS) Blended turf as a base coat to the dirt areas where I want vegetation. The blended turf gives the area a "golf course" look which is not want I want for the area around the yard, so I will be adding static grass, grass tufts, and clump foliage to the scene.
Here are the static grasses I will be using on the layout. The WS 12mm grass will go to the back. I'll add the Noch blend (2-6mm blend) to the middle ground, and the WS 2mm grass at the front.
This step is my favorite part of layout construction. The addition of scenery textures is what makes the layout come to life. I work slowly through the scenery phase, and will wait several days before adding additional textures to see if they are truly needed.
Until next time,
