REEL Question

Hey guys, quick question:

How often should I change directions? Should I mow the same pattern for like a month in a row, and then change for a month? Or change (perpendicular) every time? I do have a roller on it.

To encourage upright growth and mitigate the development of grain, I try my best to not mow the same pattern consecutively...
You can choose to burn in the stripes with a small risk that grain might appear. I personally just rotate 45° from the last mowing direction, but there are no hard and fast rules.
