I want to make a pattern in my lawn for this weekend that will be too laborious for my mowers. I will also be doing this in a few weeks for a good clients party. Both lawns are very ready to accept a good striping and get mower striping weekly. Anyways I need something light enough to carry by hand, but effective enough to lay a good pattern. I can roll it with my lawn roller, but how much weight to stripe, but not compact. I can drag it with a sheet of plywood or chainlink fence. Or I can sweep it with my power broom. Or would be willing to make something using brooms. I dont want to damage the grass or start ripping up thatch, but want to give it a shot. Ive looked into this quite a bit, just cant figure out which will work best for my purpose, without spending more than a few bucks. What would you use?
