I'm a gardening pro – my 'pattern mowing' technique ensures my lawn grows back thick & green every time

EVERYONE wants their house to have proper curb appeal.

But the exterior of a home will never look good if the front lawn is overgrown, spotty, or just plain messy.

A gardening pro and handy father named Bo, who goes by @dadadvicefrombo on TikTok, said he knows the key to a thick, bright lawn—and it’s all about how you mow it.

“Ever want to know what pattern to mow your lawn?” he asked.

“It’s important to change it each time so that your lawn doesn’t continue to grow in the same direction over and over.”

Bo said the first step is to make three complete passes around the border of your yard to create a visible delineation.

“Then start mowing in nice, straight, parallel lines.”

He suggested viewers pick a direction that is different from the last time they mowed to avoid a “lawn combover.”

“Last time I mowed this lawn I did it in a vertical pattern, so this time I'm doing it at a 45-degree angle,” he said while creating diagonal lines across the grass with the mower.

If you want your lawn to look extra special, Bo said you can make your neighbors jealous with this final trick:

“If you really want to impress your neighbors, when you’re all done reverse your direction 90 degrees and mow it in a crosshatch pattern! It really makes the lawn look great!”

Viewers loved the idea:

“Never let the lawn know your next move,” one person wrote.

“As a teen who’s just been tasked with mowing the lawn, boutta make pops’ yard the best in the neighborhood,” added another.
