Last month I rebuilt the "ground" on this side of the layout, so I decided to take it to the next level and start growing some low-lying bushes. I find this kind of work very enjoyable and relaxing. Once the glue dries, I find it also rewarding to really "amp-up" the looks of the layout by doing this. The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of having the layout in a finished state at all times, or as much as possible. Some of this scenery will be replaced with structures and roads, but in the meantime, I have a pleasant-looking layout to enjoy.
