Popular Mowing Patterns

Heartland TurfMowing is an important task to make lawns appealing and healthy. However, there are different types of mowing pattern that can provide you with unique features. To know more, below are some of the most popular mowing patterns homeowners can make use of.

Striping

The striping mowing technique will bend the grass so the light reflects on your lawn, which creates a pattern. This is done by attaching a roller to the back of your mower that will press the grass to the ground. Fortunately, rollers are available at most garden centers or lawn mower equipment retailers.

Regular stripes and plaid stripes

Another popular mowing pattern is regular and plaid stripes. When creating regular stripes, begin by mowing the perimeter of your lawn. Then, mow back and forth in opposite directions through your entire lawn. Homeowners need to be aware that you need to turn at the end of each row while taking a “Y” turn to reduce turf damage. To turn regular stripes into plaid stripes, mow straight lines back and forth in the opposite direction of entire lawn. Finish the job by going over the perimeter once more.

Diagonal and crisscross patterns

Finally, homeowners can also opt for diagonal and crisscross patterns. These patterns can create a unique style on your lawn, making it more interesting and valuable.
