looks fine to me, nothing to critique except it looks very bright, which means you would have to make everything else light :)

I can't really figure what is wrong with this particular grass, but it looks nice when you look at it 2x, but at 1x (real size) it looks too bright and blurry. My guess is that you tried to put too much detail on it, and since the colors are quite soft, the lack of contrast blends the details too much at 1x. I'm not to sure on how to improve that one in particular, you can try improving contrast, tweaking the palette or maybe trimming some detail.

Darken the colors and see how it looks.
How long can the floor creak before it loses its voice?

A small palette edit:



I opened that image in Photoshop and made a quick palette change. I mainly increased contrast between the shades and added some variations in hue to make the grass look more interesting, the darkest shade is now more like turquoise and the lighter ones tend to yellow-green. I still thing that there are too many details and the way the blades of grass are laid out make the image a bit blurry at standard size, although I still think it looks great at 2x+

You should try making a full mock-up with more tiles to see how it ends. This grass has potential heh
