Enter The Telegraph 'creatively striped lawn' Competition

Grass Clippings - Allett Kensington 17K LawnmowerFancy winning a new lawnmower?  With The Telegraph, you can!

There’s nothing more stereotypically British than afternoon tea on the lawn – and when that lawn is perfectly manicured, what could be more inviting? These days, however, the nation’s lawns are shaking off their traditional regimented stripes, possibly thanks to the influence of sports turf experts who compete to out-do each other’s patterns.

The Telegraph Gardening Team have been collecting readers’ pictures of creatively striped lawns since May. Jeremy Hawton has mown his lawn to match the contours of the garden. Jeremy, from Waterlooville, Hampshire, says: “This is a subtle take on the parallel stripe, the seductive curves draw the eye to the silver birches at the top right-hand side of the garden. This style achieves the desired effect of making a boring, long rectangular garden look wider and more interesting than it is.”

Email pictures of your creatively striped lawn to by the closing date of July 24 2015. Please include your contact address and phone number – you could also include a few lines about your creative inspiration and the mower that you use. The winners will be chosen by Allett’s lawn experts. Terms and conditions apply.
