Bumpy? Looks like a park to me. I cut much rougher ground in general. Very nice job though.

If you lived here you would be a Flames fan..... as I live in Calgary now and moved here from being in BC for 43 years, I am a Canucks fan..... that lawn screams I need to be fertilized with a Canucks logo. Good job on the lawn. We have a Gravely wb and we barely ever use it.

yea, but if you look where three lines in a row are squiggly , there is a big rut
and those squiggle marks drive me insane


thanks though

this is a 28 acre complex, and the idiot maintenance workers drive their trucks all over the wet grass, its friggin rutted everywhere


i would need 50 yards of soil and 200 pounds of seed to fix all their ruts


and the place is on a tight budget

no kit......

That's obvious. All I see are tire tracks. Even the guy they have cut the Richmond Speedway is leaving tire tracks!

It's all in how you set up the deck.

How do you make the appearance of stripes? Do you put the deck at different levels? I just do not know how it is done. Thanks.

Simple "stripes" are easy... patterned stripes take a bit of planning and are more work.

Go to you favorite book store (or Amazon) and get these 2 books!!

Good luck and have fun!
