Finally got around to snapping a few of my yard for 2008. A couple have a smudge due to a spot on the lens and a couple got cut off. I will update with the entire back yard after I cut tomorrow.

Almost, but we all know perfection is spawned from seed :)

Penn, as for the size I'm 6' and 180. With regard to it pulling you, that all depends on your mower. I'd say if you are running a hydro there should be no issue, albeit 15hp could be a bit underpowered. I'm running a belt w/a 15 and have had no issues but I'd HIGHLY recommend running a hydro w/more HP if you are a bit bigger. If I were doing it again in a walk I'd definitely go with a hydro.

Thanks guys, I do get a fair amount of people that stop and ask what I do to my yard to get the color and look. Many don't want to deal with the cost, hassle, and maintenance but it's quite relaxing. :)

Hey Cape, there are a couple of old posts about what I did somewhere on here. When we bought the place they put in the standard rye/blue mix. I did a full renovation and went 100% Lesco KB. As you can see, the results were great. I'd not recommend this unless you have irrigation, which at that house we did. Now my new house, that's a whole different story! I'll have to post up some recent pics of what I'm dealing with. It will take me awhile but I'll get this place up to snuff! :D

When i was at my largest, 6' 320. I ran a Pro Slide behind a Gravely 1748h pulled fine. Bit of a upper body workout keeping the front wheels on the ground going up a hill though. You think he can put some lines down at 180, try putting 300 on that thing.
