Do you ever get tired of straight lines? I do, I've been playing around with following the contours of the landscape to produce wavy stripes. I just started a few weeks ago, but here are a few pics.

Thats pretty wicked there.

I like to mow the grass real low, then round up my signature in the front.

I tried the curvy stripes once but got dizzy doing it.

Here is one more, I kinda don't like the pic because the bordering neighbor's lawn is shaggy at the back.

Looks good right there. I have done that a few times. Sure does help change it up a little bit. You ever taken a yard that is kinda square/rectangular with nothing in the middle and make a multi colored square into the center?? That always confuses people when they look at it, LOL.

I tried it once before, but need to practice more. Gotta be careful or it won't look good at all.

If you own a walker is super easy to do so. I have cut hearts in to customers lawns for thier anniversary. I do put wavy stripes in my own lawn just for fun. Mostly because I have 125 oak trees in my front yard. So cutting straight lines is really a PITA

That looks pretty cool. I used to think about it, but I kinda forgot about it. Maybe I'll try it sometime this week.

looks great but let me ask the question that'll get me flamed....doesn't that take longer to do? If so, are you charging more to do that?

You know, it doesn't really take any longer, I just find a nice wavy line, like along flowerbeds, and I just work it back and forth all the way across.

This thread is getting cool, those crossing wavy stripes look great mx495,
I like the high arc in Chris' stripes.
