Translation

"He Who has, made for you the earth like a carpet spread out; has enabled you to go about therein by roads (and channels); and has sent down water from the sky." With it have We produced diverse pairs of plants each separate from the others.

Tafsir

He is, the One Who made for you, as well as [for] all creatures, the earth a cradle, a bed, and threaded, facilitated, for you therein ways, roads, and sent down from the sky water, rain. God, exalted be He, says, as a complement to Moses's description of Him and as an address to the people of Mecca: and therewith We brought forth various kinds, species, of plants (shattaa, 'various', adjectivally qualifies azwaajan, 'kinds'), in other words, [plants] of different colours, flavours and [different] in other ways (shattaa is the plural of shateet, similar [in pattern] to mareed, [plural] mardaa, as [may be used] in [a phrase like] shatta alamr, 'the affair has become divided').
