Help! Making Sketchup more realistic

Hi friends!  I have been working in Sketchup and have been having trouble with my models and final presentation materials (specifically vegetation and trees) looking very unrealistic.  I was wondering if anyone had any advice or resources that they could share with me to improve my skills. Thank you!See More

Hi there Nichole!

I'm Sam, and I am currently a summer student enrolled in a Landscape Architecture class at the University of Maryland. I am very interested in the profession. 

For a class project, I am using Land8Lounge as a place to ask landscape architects from around the world a few questions about their field. If you are at all interested in participating, then feel free to write me back. 

Thanks!!
