Avoiding marks on lawn while turning wright stander

It seems as if even when the grass is the slightest wet , when I turn my wright stander it leaves a round dirt circle on the grass. Is there any way I can avoid this?

Hey, they don't call um O turns for nothing. That mark is the mark of a O turn mower. LOL

Ever heard of a 3 point turn? They teach this in drivers ed. It's so you can turn a automobile around in a tight place. When you apply this to a zero turn mower on grass, you'll notice the down to dirt circles disappear.

Three point turn or keep both wheels moving by one going forward and one in reverse.
