mfrow is for classic graphics and when the graphs are unrelated.

lattice is for grid graphics and typically when the panels are related
such as being the same plot but conditioned on different factor levels.

These are typical uses only as one can write arbitary panels with lattice
and produce related graphs using mfrow with some extra work.
