I clicked on this expecting to see a bunch of wavy stripes.... but it looks really good and i like how the stripes end right at the building...

That's not too bad to do...Just come back on every other same line. we do this on several lawns that have a plaid pattern, as opposed to the standard checkerboard. It looks good! Nice job!

it was just ******ed trying to get rid of the half circles left when you go around the trees... so the lines pull through all the trees.....


and i have the 25hp kubota diesel in my mower...

how much do you charge for mowing on that account?

This is my personal house, so I don't charge a thing! It my yard I try all my idea's on first. If I like how it turns out, I then bring it to my customer yards. Also, if the neighbors stop by more than once to comment on it - then I know its good to go on to other yards.

ya, but if you knew anything you would know ZD stands for Diesel (ZG is gas) and the size of that hood over the motor is a dead give away.

update!!! thought about a new thread, but this will work.


big box little box is coming together!!!!! once those diagonal lines start to disappear more, i think it will look niceeeee! this was after only one cutting the east/west direction.

Screamin, I did this last week also. I went 2 passes one way to every pass the opposite and it was kind of a PITA! The property wasnt as big as the one you did and in my opinion it looks a lot better on bigger property's. Looks great!

Looks like a pita to do but looks pretty neat and different, I might have to try that sometime

I should start to carry my camera when I go to customer yards. I've done it on all my yards I cut, and it ALWAYS looks nice. I've actually had one guy stop me and fire his current company just because he liked the look of my "Big box, little box" pattern.

that looks great how did u get the stripes right up next to the house and the metal buiding did u have to back up the mower to it?

where my striper kit sits, all you have to do is back the mower right up to the landscaping and run with it. i go a no outline cut when i mow my yards, i outline as i go so my lines go the right direction... takes a little extra blowing off, but it looks much better IMO
