you should go back over some of those lines to eliminate the tree ring circles.

Looks lush. Those homeowners on the left could f art and the people on the right would smell it in a second because they are so close. Nice job.

Do your trim and circle passes first. Then start at the back and forth stripes by the trees and work your way out away from them. In other words, hop the curb at the stripe that passes on the right of the tree. Mow down, circle the tree, proceed to end. Turn back on stripe that passes to the left of the tree and return to the curb. Turn and make the next pass back to the house. This pass will erase the circle (dark arc in light pass). Continue to work left to the drive.

Run down street, hop curb and start on the pass running towards that heat pump/power box/whatever. That pass will erase those circles. Return on pass to the left, which will erase the circles to the left of the tree.

If the circles still remain, you will have to add a stripe kit to help act as a better eraser, if that makes sense....

Thats wrong envy, the key is to put the tree in the middle of a strip.

Blow off the driveway. If you have time to take pictures you have time to make the lawn look better. Striping kits are way overrated. They make a lawn look unnatural.
