major pet peeve of mine. especially since i take a good amount of time doing it and it takes 3 seconds for someone to take a short cut back to the trailer and drive right through it.

I layed down some nice stripes finally on one of my nicer yards and I go to do the neighbors when the frieken fertilizing company rolls up(Im in the process of getting the fertilizing program). Those guys just see how crazy of lines they can leave driving right through your nice stripes

well my normal helper had 12 stitches in his hand so i had to get someone else. that just happened to be my dad, he is always ready to help but has not the first clue about this business. this has happened before and i have gone crazy. this one particular lawn is right on a busy stretch of road and is about 2.5 acres and on a hill. the stripes on it will make you dizzy, so i guess you could understand why i would be so picky about it. everybody else knows not to go through my pattern but him no matter how many times i tell him.

I had a lawn once where the back yard never hardly grew taller than 2" and the front stayed at 3 1/2". My Uncle after finishing the back yard with a 21" mower ran right across my stripes with his mower still running. Man i was pissed.
