I want to know how people make checkers in their lawn Ihave tried before but did not get great results. will someoneplease explain the method for this. *ps* I have a stripe kit on my wb.
 
What type of grass are you trying to stripe? All you have to do is go one direction one week and go another direction the second week, keep alternating the directions.

Like NCSU said go one way one week and the opposite the next. If you want checkers the same day just double cut it using the above method...but you better be getting paid plenty extra for it.

Works best on cool season grasses I.E. tall fescue, and a striping kit wouldn't hurt. Different directions as stated in previous responses.

You have to mow in EXACTLY the same tracks as the last time mowed(rotating directions each mow). If you get off of the line then you will have to go the other 2 directions(to make either X's or square's). until you can't see the other lines anymore.
