Default Lawn mowing designs

you know the creativity amongst alot of us runs rapant. you can only go horizontal and vertical up and down and sideways so many times before its gets rather boring somewhat. Anybody have a good selection of patterns or designs that they can share with or at least point me to the right direction?.
thanks. I mowed this one earlier today.. i kinda liked it nothing fancy by any means, been raining alot here.

Usually grass looks best when cut lengthwise, it's easiest to do.

Though for the back yard of many residential homes, you are able to mow in different angles creating a new & awesome look.

Mike the picture looks great.

Has anyone ever experimented with cutting a lawn in kind of a serpentine pattern like this?

Default hmmm

you mean in a circular pattern?. I did one around my kids sandbox once and then came out vertically. looked like a sun shape. i thought it looked good. maybe if i had a stripper it would have made the difference. Id like to know how they get the squares looking so good and standing out. Seems hard to me.

How do you go about doing that design? That is pretty complex!

That's not one of my lawns, just an image I found. Just showing that some curved stripes can look great if done right.

That picture is actually from the cover of a book called "Picture Perfect Mowing Techniques for Lawns,landscapes and sports." By David R. Mellor. The author is a master ************* for Fennway park from what I understand.

I just did this design about an hour ago. The light is not right so you cannot see the lines as well as you would in the morning...but I am sure you get the idea.
