    either damp long grass or when the grass is dry and you cut it really short. and a striping kit helps :)

    at least thats how it is with my experiences.

    The longer, the more vivid the stripes. If it's wet or damp, same thing.

    Oh, and for your question, I think sometimes they seem to stripe better in the mornings or at least look like it. :waving:

    Water also adds weight to the blades to keep them bent over farther..

    I have always thought lawns look the best when they have been while they are slightly damp.
