When you see a lawn with stripes mowed into it, doesn’t it just make the property seem somehow nicer? No matter how nicely a lawn is mowed or gardens are landscaped, a yard doesn’t look completely finished until it has a pattern mown into it.
Lawn art shows that you go the extra mile in taking care of your property. If you’re looking to improve your curb appeal, this is a simple step to neaten up your home’s appearance. If you’re a business with a lawn in front of your building, it can help make your company more appealing to clients or potential customers as they feel welcomed into a well kept-up, clearly cared for building.
Lawn Art From AC Yard Services
While stripes are a popular choice for lawn art, they are far from your only option. From simple stripes to more complex designs, the AC Yard Services team is enjoying adding a unique touch to many of our clients’ properties. We can keep it classic with straight lines, or we can get a little more intricate.
That said, having the Red Sox logo mowed into your lawn is lawn art…but that’s not really the type of lawn art we do. We’ll leave that to the Fenway grounds crew.
What can we do? All kinds of geometric designs. Zigzags, checkerboard, even curved lines – if you have an idea in mind, let us know! If you’d like our professional insight into what might work best for your lawn and your property, we’re always happy to advise on landscaping matters.
Classic straight lines can help give your property a clean look. Perhaps you have a curved stone staircase leading into your front door; you can emphasize its beauty by having arcs mowed into your lawn that are aligned with the stairway. Use a checkerboard pattern to show off how dark green and lush your grass is, or use zigzags to add a little character as you make your yard a little neater.
Alternating Lawn Art Patterns
Once you’ve settled on a lawn art pattern, you can always change it from mow to mow. In fact, not only can you change it – you should change it.
When you mow the same way, in the same pattern over and over the grass under the wheels is consistently getting crushed, which can create ruts from mower wheels as well as cause fungus and disease to grow in that part of the grass. Your grass needs to breathe to stay healthy, and by giving areas of it a break from being crushed under mower wheels, or even just have the blades pushed in a different direction, you’re giving it a bit more freedom to breath and to grow.
You don’t have to completely change patterns from curved to zig-zag and back again (though you certainly can), but do something as simple as reverse the direction the curves are facing, or have stripes run vertically instead of horizontally.
Lawn art isn’t just fun, it’s a great way to keep your yard looking its best. If you’ve been looking for a way to take your property to the next level, lawn art might be the solution.
