"Contrary to the many complaints about the Bright Green colour of this baseplate, I personally love the colour! Grasses do come in various shades of green, and it’s not entirely unrealistic to have Bright Green grass.
Moreover, the bright green provides a nice contrast to the regular green of the trees and plants when built upon it. Built on Regular Green baseplates and the trees and plants would tend to “disappear” as they would be of the same shade as the “grass”.
This Bright Green baseplate, however, may not match with the regular Green baseplates and this seems to be the main gripe amongst fans who already have collected many baseplates in regular Green. Perhaps LEGO can produce green baseplates in both shades?"
