Do you notice the variance in the stripes? I don't mean the wheel marks, in the middle there are strips of different colors. My scag does it too. Any idea why?

I did an edging job for the Lowell Gardening Club next to this popular restaurant and across from City Hall.

As you can see the lawn has been neglected but they are working to get it all back in shape.

Only happened on this lawn cuz its so thick and was very long so i almost did more damage then good. I double and triple cut which makes it worse the more time you did it to get it uniform.

Definitly. He will be doing that soon. The f-250's dont have the overload leaf springs like my F-350 and i have air-bags also so i know how much they help. Hes got way to much tongue weight and its hard to wind down the trailer jack too. I suggested he get everything weight in figure out if there is a problem with the weight.

I've cut the lawn before when its a normal height and its looked much better.
