What is the best way to mow the lawn?

Alternate your pattern

Lawns that are mowed frequently can develop ruts from mower wheels, especially if you have a large, heavy tractor or rider. When you mow, alternate your pattern. Mow once traveling horizontally across the lawn. The next time, travel vertically. If you really want to get fancy and impress the neighbors, travel diagonally on the third mowing and diagonally from the opposite corner the fourth time.
