Well it depends what you are doing it for...if you just want it placed on the ground and not moving or blowing about, you could just make a ground plane and then get a photorealistic photo of the soil and plant it on there.....adding a desaturated/level adjusted version of it for the bump and, spec, etc. So I guess i should ask....what is it for?

For the sand, try this excellent tutorial:

For the soil... Well, that's up to you. ;)

Hope this helps!
