The light and dark lawn stripes are created when sunlight reflects off blades of grass that are bent in different directions. One of the easiest ways to stripe your lawn is with a lawn striper kit. You can also use a tow-behind or push lawn mower roller, sometimes called a yard roller.

How do groundskeepers make lines in the grass?

This process is called lawn striping. To ensure greater contrast in their patterns, many groundskeepers not only use old-fashioned reel mowers, but they often attach a lawn roller behind the blades of the mower, which causes the grass to bend down further in the direction it is cut.

How long should grass be cut?

A Rule of Thumb An optimal height for a cool-season grass generally is about 2 1/2 inches. And at each mowing, you should only be removing about the top 1/3 of the grass blade. Consequently, a good time to mow lawns is when your grass is about 3 2/3 inches high.

How high should you set your lawn mower?

Always Mow at 3 Inches or Taller Often the highest setting on most mower types is 3 inches. Mowing the grass at 3 inches or taller will prevent diseases, promote deep digging roots, help the grass conserve water, improve turf density, and improve turf color.

How do you fix a bumpy lawn?

Apply scoops of fresh topsoil to low areas of the lawn using a shovel. Keep the new dirt no more than 1/2 inch thick so the existing grass can grow through it. If it's too deep, the dirt will kill the existing grass. Spread the dirt slightly with the rake if the dirt gets too deep.

What is the most efficient way to mow your lawn?

Mowing in rows is usually the fastest, most efficient way to cut your lawn. But the direction of your rows plays a role in how quickly you mow. If your lawn is wider than it is long, you should mow in horizontal rows.

Why should you mow your lawn in different directions?

If you always cut your lawn using the same pattern, your grass learns which direction it's being cut from and begins to lean in the direction you mow. By varying the mowing pattern, you help avoid forming ruts in the lawn. Plus, grass will stand up nice and tall since it will be mowed from all different directions.
