It's a great feeling to have a striped lawn, and anyone can achieve it with a little care.
The striped effect is caused by the grass laying in different ways. Mowing all the way to one end of the lawn and then turning around and coming back the other way, then going back over your pattern with a garden roller will leave you with the correct effect.
You can add to this effect by turning 90o and mowing, then rolling, across your lawn to create a cross-hatched effect.
Finish by mowing a box around the end of your lawn and trimming the edges.
