Would a layman notice tyre difference?

Most of the terrain in my area is sand, however at times I like the flexibility of riding from my house to the riding spot, hence i need to ride on the road a bit.
Ive got an int/hard terrain to cope with the road going part, but i'm not sure how much i'm missing out in the sandy stuff.
Would an average rider notice the difference in using a sand-specific tyre in terms of grip levels?

If you race and change your tires as soon as the knobs start to round off then you will notice the difference between soft and hard.
The big difference is in deep sand and Mud, you can really appreciate a mud and sand tire there.
Look at the MT44 it seems to work great all over even in sand and doesn''t chunck too much in rocks.
