Yes. The mow patterns were established with setting the lawn mower at 2 different heights. Once established, the tall stripe requires less mowing than the short.

It makes me think... use lawn w/another ground cover material instead of all lawn. Then perhaps you only mow 1/2 as much!! LOL

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Spirals are one of the most distinct structural shapes in nature: ammonites, the pattern of seeds in a sunflower and the shape of DNA molecules, for instance. The spiral is a symbol of a spiritual journey to some and is a simple pattern used by many cultures.Used here as a design cut from grass, the spiral is merely a pattern that fills an open space.
Lawn can be living sculpture. A concentric-circles effect like this is achieved by setting the mower at different cutting heights.
