To get a lush-looking lawn, you might consider mixing up your cutting routine.

Grass tends to grow in the direction you cut it, so cutting in the same pattern prevents the grass blades from standing up straight (which gives a bad cut).

According to Mike Ballou of John Deere, cutting the lawn in alternating patterns works best:

"Cut your lawn north to south one time, east to west the next and diagonally after that."

P.S. Have a look at my other investigations, videos and podcasts and get the real truth about life...
