    Does it keep its shape after the grass dries out? Also, this isn't really the best and thickest grass. They are not on a fert program and pretty much just let grow whatever grows. It's not awful grass but its not luscious by any means either.

    Because I thought about just striping it with a broom or something but I'm not sure if the grass will stay bent? It does stripe fine though so maybe it would hold its form. Hard to say

    When I did the American Flag (from the picture above) the star could be seen very well for about 2-3 days, it took a couple mowings to actually disappear entirely.

    Huh that's really interesting. Graduation is the 3rd week of May so I have some time to try a few different ideas. This is definitely one I will mess around with and see how it does. Thanks for the suggestion!
