If the lawn is wet when you mow it, or if it is wilting due to being overly dry, you'll see lines from the wheels. The grass will pop up eventually. The best approach is to water the day before you mow, and wait until after the dew has evaporated from the blades before you mow. And, try to mow as often as necessary to keep the lawn at a consistent height. When it reaches 3" in height, mow it down to 2". If you allow it to get overly tall and then mow it, you'll end up with irregular lines in the turf. Best wishes with your turfgrass!
