    All you need is something to lay the grass down ever so slightly. Most of the commercial mowers have a kit that is a large roller that mounts to the back of the deck. John Deere has one that goes on their zero turns that is a large brush that mounts to the deck. You could make something to mount on the back of your Murray such as a heavy piece of rubber or like you said a mud flap cut to fit. Most anything will lay the grass down if you cut it at 3 1/2 to 4 inches. I've even heard of people using a lawn roller after they mow to lay down a stripe pattern. Hope this helps.
