    Stripes, waves or checkerboard visible on the lawn is not at all complicated to make. And what is important here is not the species of grass or the height of the cut. The whole secret lies in a special roller, roller or roll (the nomenclature of one product varies). This device is installed in mowers instead of rear wheels. If you do not have such a device, you can rent one from any power tool rental company. On the other hand, another option is to buy just the wring roller itself. You can easily mount it on the back of your mower.

    Patterns on the lawn are formed by bending the blades of grass in a particular direction. If they bend in the direction you look, they appear lighter. In contrast, you will get the impression of a darker grass color when individual blades shade each other. In addition, the angle of incidence of the light and the place where it is reflected (the tip of the leaf or its wider part) are also of great importance.

    The simplest pattern is, of course, stripes. To create them you need to mow and roll the grass in different directions. The idea is that the grass that is in adjacent stripes should line up in opposite directions.

    On a similar principle, you can also create an impressive checkerboard. First, start by creating strips horizontally. Then make another row of stripes, but already vertically.

    So, now you already know how to make strips on your lawn.
