It depends on what you want it to look like when done, if you don't care then is their really is no right or wrong way to mow.
He defended his statement by saying that, when turning towards the uncut side your wasting time because the mower has to travel further to back up and get aligned for the next pass. I fired back by arguing the point that it doesn't matter which way you turn, you still have to go through the same motions to mow...

I agree with the last part of your response, there really is no "right/wrong" way to mow. I guess the point to the argument would be, what's the most efficient way to do it.....

For the sake of this Poll lets just say the entire perimeter is bordered by a street. I brought up this point to the rep and his solution to this was, "make 3 perimeter passes then". Who does this....???
