I have never heard of lawn striping outside of sports stadiums. When I was looking for something on YouTube, I came across lawn striping videos. There are even entire systems you can buy to get the effect. (It would be cheaper to just have your two-year-old roll across the lawn in different directions, but whatever.)
Anyway, I have never seen or heard of this before for your own lawn. Do people actually do this? Is it a regional thing? It this the next level of being an armchair referee? (I understand how it works, so that isn't my question.)
I ask because I find it looks absolutely hideous! It looks so ridiculous, yet there are people who obviously take pride in their lawn striping. Please explain it to me!
