Some ground textures are black
So lately I've had this problem with Skyrim were the ground (flat ground most ground is ok like paths) is black I can't seem to fix it which is annoying because I can't play this game when it's like this.

P.S - Also there's another problem when the screen goes black for no reason, the HUD is still there and I can acess the map, skills menu and I can still hear sound, it's just everything else goes black.

Looks like a lighting-related mod is bugging out, try to deactivate them and see if that helps.
If you're not using any lighting-mods, try verifiing your game files. Right click the game in your library, then go to properties -> local files and click "verify integrity of game cache".

Would a weather mod affect it the ground?

This has happened to me alot, I could never work out exactly what does it, it fixes it's self for me, sometimes after enter and exit a cell, sometimes after a couple of days, I'd like to hear if it's the same for you.

Well I'll try and unsubscribe the weather mod and see if it works :)

Try to install SKSE and run Skyrim from the SKSE launcher.

I've heard black textures means your VRAM is full.
Hopefully others can chime in and give more info

I tried to install SKSE once but it broke my Skyrim completely and had to reinstall the whole game again.

Do you know what would be the recommended VRAM?
Also I tired to unistall the weather mod I had but it had no effect :(

Vanilla Skyrim needs at least 512mb of vram. If you're using a lot of mods that add high-res-textures (like the optional bethesda-dlc), you'll probably need up to ~1,5gb or even more if you're going nuts with 4k texture mods. ^^ If you're running out of vram that can indeed lead to black textures or even ctds. Antialiasing generally also needs tons of vram, so disabling texture-mods and lowering the AA in the launcher might fix your problem.
Ok I'll try that, see if that works

Black textures mean a texture isnt' loading for the landscape surface... I get it if I try and use too many textures in a cell in CK, game engine only supports so many. This on the other hand could be a Vram issue, certainly worth a shot.
