Grass appears floating...(see samples).

I'm curious if anyone might know what causes this weird effect (see attached) where the grass seems to float in rows above the plain and jut out from the edge of the hill like it's mounted on shelves in the distant parts of this scene. For what it's worth, this is a DEM imported into Vue as the terrain, but there aren't any shapes or patterns like this in the imported DEM.

This happens quite a bit when I try to do a more widespread grass coverage on a terrain, but it's usually only very apparent on the more distant background flatter areas, and typically appears as rows or squares, geometric patterns like someone planted rows or fields. It's not always floating in the air, but it happens for some reason I cannot fathom.

Any ideas on how to avoid this would be appreciated.
