Today was our first day out mowing.. Stripes are showing up great for it being so early in the season, although we need to get back into the striping groove (alittle crooked right now)..

I am an obvious novice. How do you get the different colors of green to show like in your pictures? Are you cutting at different heights, different direction, etc.? Thanks, Homey

mexandme,

The different colors show up because I cut one direction, zero-turn and then go the other direction..

pro,

I'm putting in about 50-55hrs a week right now.. Once school is over 70-80per week..

not to be a dic$ but dos that patio have a base. You have a hump in the middle and that sand looks like play sand not the best stuff to use. You should use screening tubes to. The sand should be flat before you lay any paver's. You will have to tamp the sh%^ out of it to get it flat. 90% of the job is base just a little food for thought.
