LawnMaker is a tool which let's you grow a big amount of object on a given
surface (most times a height field). Placement, size and orientation of
grassblades (and any other type of objects) is mostly controlled by
patterns. By using images it is possible to 'paint' the plants on the
landscape.

The documentation is included in the inc-file (and I hope it is helpful). I
don't know if there are more elegant solutions to this kind of problem but
maybe someone might find this little tool helpful.

Here is the zip-file:

And here a small example (pov-file is included in the zip):
