    that little stripe was from him trimming around that bed with the mower and making the grass the darker color, then on the next pass he went over it and pushed it the other way, making it a lighter stripe but a little bit of the old dark stripe remained on the edge, if that makes any sense

    allright well dark striped are coming toward you and whites are going with you, that said he was coming toward where he took the picuture and mowed right up close to the gravel then he moved another stripe over and went back the toher way, but he ran back over some of to keep it straight, but not all of the grass, he hit earlier therefor leaveing the little stripe and making the stripes look flawles and stright.

    is that just one cut(week), cutting stripes in that direcetion?

    if you change angles of cut will this stripe still show up in folowing weeks?

    yes, I change direction every other mowing . This lawn I call the lawn from Hell .I mow it every 4-5 days. This gentleman did all the landscaping and installed the lawn. He pours on the fert. and irrigates. It is the thickest and greenest lawn I have ever seen. So by the time I mow other direction it leaves a hint of the stripes in the other direction. I take great pride in my mowing and stripeing and go the extra mile to lay down a perfect striped lawn.I may not be the best or even close but I want to feel good about my work when I drive away.
