How to create a lawn?

Hi all.

I’m after some advice or tips for creating a lawn in an architectural image.

Using the hair particle system seems a bit over-kill, but a plain grass texture results in a lifeless ‘green carpet’. I’m pretty new to Blender (started using it this weekend in fact), so I’m sure there is some obvious function I’ve missed, but any suggestions would be most helpful.

Thanks in advance.


Yes, sorry about the duplication. i didn’t realise posts went through the moderators first, so I thought my previous post simply hadn’t registered.
