Because striping looks nice on a lawn. otherwise, you just have a yard with half the yard dark from one pass direction, and the other half light from an opposite pass direction. that looks poor IMO, and like someone who either doesn't know how to do it correctly, or is too lazy to try to do it at all. Either that, or they could care less how their work and/or customers lawns look, and are only interested in making as much money as they can. The thing about that attitude around here, is that they won't be making as much as they can for very long.
