Default Cross pollination with the model train world?

So to speak in gardening terms

Idly browsing the web looking for materials for making bushes etc, I came across this website with lots of useful videos which could be adapted for dolls house gardens. I particularly like the video on using the 'water'.

Woodland Scenics - Model Layouts, Scenery, Buildings and Figures

Hopefully of interest

Thanks for the tip, this looks very useful. Surely we can learn from the model railway scenery makers and use their techniques for our gardening and landscapes too ...

Thumbs up

I've bought this stuff over the years and it works well...THE MINI BORDER WALL IS USED AS DRY STONE WALLS (OO and HOscales)IN FIELDS TO KEEP THE ANIMALS CONTAINED IN THEIR OWN PLOT AND THE RED/YELLOW PLANTS ARE TREES,THE GRASS COMES AS A BIG SHEET.PLENTY TO 'PLAY' WITH...the LICHEN is railway foliage too!
