That's what I started to realize. It just looks so much nicer after the second time you go over it. Plus the checker board patterns look awesome(IMO)

I do the checker/crosscut pattern on all of my good lawns, makes for a smoother cut.

I agree and do the same, thats what our company strives for as well, and it is paying off. I cannot believe how many compliments we get from local companies saying that our accounts look gorgeous! I myself don't mind spending a little more fuel money and making the account look better. Works for you in the long run. Keep up the good work!

I also double cut because i cant bring myself to only mow once and make it look just "ok" im wicked detail oriented and will mow it as many times as i need to to make it look the way i want it to look.
