For countryside have you thought about painting your own?
This is my attempt using acrylic house paint coloured with artist's acrylics.

For stone walls try this method.

For backdrops this guy is an inspiration.

This how I got started

Give it a go on a piece of scrap board and you may just inlock the hidden artist.

The platform1 mrc has heaps of very good modelers who may be of some help it is mostly HO scale but you can just scale up anything you see and like.

I am going to do this on my G scale layout using fibre cement as my board.
