Update 22 June 2014
The grasses in this resource pack has been included in Hoddminir Flowers togetter with the other grass type resources.

If you are like me, you have noticed that Skyrim lacks variation in its flora. I went out in to the forests and fields with my camera and took pictures of different grasses. And this is the finished product :) It is a modders resource that lets you add some more kinds of grasses to your own mod.

If you make something using this resource that you think looks really nice, please upload a picture :)
Please endorse if you like this resource!

If you want more flora resources I have also released a package of Spring flowers: Springflowers Pack 1
Springflowers Pack 2
Hoddminir water plants

I made this resource as a part of the Hoddminir mod development, if you wish to find out more, visit the development blog:

This is a modders resource that contains 37 different grasses to add to your own mod. There are some different color variants (Y: Yellow, R: Red) for some of the grasses.
All grasses are in two different models, a vanilla Skyrim model and a more thick model called *B. The thick model are from the Lush Grass mod (
I would like to thank SparrowPrince for giving me permission to use them.
I have uploaded three different resolutions of this resource, 512, 1024 and 2048.

With the Creation kit - How to add nifs manually

2. Double click on the original grass, this will open the grass window.
3. In ID write a new uniq name (ex EGrass01)
4. click the Art file Edit, choose the grass nif file. Click OK.
5. Now the CK will ask you if you want to create a new object, press Yes.

If you have trouble to add or make the grass to show, make sure you have these entries in your Skyrim.ini and SkyrimPrefs.ini files under [GRASS]:

If you are experinsing FPS loss due to lots of grass turning of the shadow on grass can help.
