When you go down a slope and back up it changes the grass height, so it appears to look like scalping to other areas..
Taking a trimmer to level out hill isn't out of question...!

You're one of the very few alive that can stripe dips correctly. Welcome to the club. Usually most people get a curve in them.

Well Weaver, congrats on the good eye! In truth, I went back to using only walkbehinds a few season's ago. And all those sloped properties were a big part of the decision.

Stripes Are For Zebras
