Technically, every "town" i make is a village. I never make more than like 8 houses to a development.
Unfortunately I don't think there's a way to fix the grass or elevation issues that you mentioned with the RTP. While it is an annoying limitation, it's one that I am okay with. I don't particularly have any desire to move away from the RTP, I'm a big fan of it.
There is actually a water source below the bottom left house. It got cut off though when I made the screenshots.
And I'm not sure what you mean by the tree group, are you referring to the ones by the center house?
