Im making a new lawn this year and would like to get a good mower for making stripes. I know I need a mower with rear roller, but id like to do some research into which type is best for me.

It depends on the size of your lawn yard.

I did a brief research on it. Some English people use cut the grass but mow the lawn is not unheard of. They find mow the lawn a bit more formal and old-fashioned. They say they could imagine people in the time of Sherlock Homes would have used mow the lawn.

Wonder what they do to the lawn in Wimbledon. Maybe they slice it?

Sorry for the three-year delay, but . . .

I find it VERY strange that someone would consider trying to mow a yard . . . a bit hard on the blades.

yard n
