Grass cutting Techniques

How do you cut your grass - stripes, circles, diamonds, triangles - any other techniques?




















So - has this got a chance in the most boring thead ever stakes?

What's so funny about peace, love and understanding?

no chance at all Rob, I'm afraid!!

me personally, on my small patch of scrub out the back, it tends to be swirls as I wrestle with the electric flymo type thingy trying to avoid cat do-do's and dead slugs!

share you're lawn shapes with us Rob!

... i only came online to visit Delia's site for tips on how to season a frying pan ...

Ours does tend to look quite good and lush. But I cant take the credit as i havent mowed a lawn in my life !

My husband tends to adopt the 'stripe' look.

I'm not perfect, but im so close it scares me

we have a nice little man who does ours. Depending on how many bottles of cold beer he drinks during the 2 hour process we may be treated to stripes in the front lawn, swirls in the side lawn and snores from the back garden....

Well, I like the "striped" look meself, but our current lawnmower doesn't do that. I think you need a mower with a specific blade type. We've got a hovver mower which is rubbish - it more "irons" the lawn than cuts it.

Yeah, i think it does need to be a certain type of mower. We have a petrol jobbie which we bought a few years ago, and it does lovely stripes. Never had them before though, as we used to have a hovver mower.

Wow - you have servants! Or is "help" the more PC terms these day.

Crikey, I'm a real peasant - I have to do me own lawn :laugh:

If at first you don't succeed, failure may be your style.

I do mine by myself - no hired hands - I just rush around it until is cut - no pattern at all!

Takes me about an hour to cut our grass, I just sit on the mower and go up and down the garden, it`s a bit like riding a quad bike.

Truth be told I just whizz the hover mower up down round and round in no particular way. As long as it`s cut, I`m happy
