I can. The first one will look good after a bit of rain but the second will look fake and awful every day of the year.

 

Not knocking your work as you do what the customer wants and you cant buy taste.

No that's fine. There's a call for it and it pays well. Once some leaves drop on it and such it really doesn't look fake at all. 

 

I have done high spec turfing jobs using minster pro lawn on high quality soil and it looks so good it looks fake.

We did a pair of sycamore removals a year or two back, between the garden we were in there was a lane and then the neighbour's garden back of a large terraced house. In neighbours garden  I could see astroturfed golf hole surrounded by plastic grass,cue wind and rain in the right direction. I asked lad I was working for do you want me to stop,answer NO from him and customer. Result was plastic turf man spending 2 days hoovering his lawn.
I tried not to smile too much, you may have guessed  i hate platic grass


Was even funnier when we went back to finish it off the job and the same happened again
