Stripes?

Why would you want to put stripes on a lawn? It then looks like a cheap mower was used. Perhaps I am missing the point? Customers want their lawns to look as if they have been mowed by a cheap garden tractor? For example, some of the best kept lawns in the world are in Washington, D.C. The lawn at the White House (the best) doesn't have a stripe on it. The entire Mall area between the Lincoln Memorial and the U.S. Capital doesn't have stripes either. I agree with one of the earlier posts. Stripes and checkerboards are nice for some stadiums, but they look kinda CHEAP on a well kept lawn.

Why stripe

My guess would be the same reason Ford, Chevy, and Chrysler have all been in business for about 100 years. Different strokes for different folks.
Would it not be boring if everyone wanted 1200 square foot ranch houses painted white with blue trim with a two car garage with a black Ford Contour setting out in front by the two juniper bushes, well you get the picture.
I myself think that a well striped lawm of any size looks great and apparently from the posts here so do many others.
Just my opinion but please don't knock it.
