Response to Woodland scenics??

Matt,

I haven't found a lot of use for WS's ballast since its pretty uniform in size (unles thats the effect you're after). I've used everyhing from sand from a stream, cat litter, and smashed up plaster to represent small rocks and rubble. As for grass, you should try to find some static grass. A good model railroad shop should carry it if your local hobby shop doesn't. Be warned that static grass can also suffer from the uniform size problem mentioned above if you're applying it to large areas. For tall grass, old paint brush bristles (the big ones used to paint houses and such) do a pretty nice job.

HTH
