Create a specific crop pattern using Landscape Grass Type

Hello,

I want to create a very specific and accurate pattern of crops on a farm land. I am using UE4.21 for my project and am experimenting with Landscape Grass Type tool to create the pattern. The issue I am facing is that I am not able to arrange the grass object in a desired pattern. I will try to express the issue in a little more detail below.

Step 01:
I was able to create a parallel-y placed field using the standard Landscape material and Landscape Grass tool as shown in the image below.

Above is the screen shot taken from within the editor. Also sharing the screenshot of the material and Landscape Grass Type setup.

Step 02:
I am trying to layout the grid as per the following image, where blue marks the placement needed for the grass type. So, distance between each grass object in one row is 22ft (about 670.56cm). Two parallel rows are also 22ft apart, but there needs to be an offset of 11ft between the grass objects in the 2 adjacent rows. I have tried to explain it in the image below.

I have tried many different things like increasing the density of the grass type objects, using multiple landscapes, to name a few. But I am not able to figure out how to get the exact pattern.

I would really appreciate it if anyone could point me in the right direction. Any support is greatly appreciated.

Thank you!
Amey
