Here's a tutorial I found to make a tileable texture from whatever image you want.

You need GIMP: http://www.gimp.org/downloads/

1.Search your image, and download it.

2.Open it in Gimp.

3. Go to the Filters menu and chose Map > Make Seamless (For me it's 'Decor > Maak Naadloos', because I use the Dutch version of Gimp)

Save it and you can use it in Sketchup or in your map as a ground texture or wherever you want. !!!!! ALWAYS MAKE A BACKUP BEFORE EDITING AN IMAGE !!!!!

Please note: I got all the information from here: http://www.distractable.net/how-tos/using-gimp-to-create-tileable-textures/. I just tought it could be helpfull for you and I've put the text from that site in steps here, I didn't make the tutorial!

Enjoy :)
