River rock in front of dark mulch looks awesome I think, they contrast each other nicely. I just really dislike river rock in the long run no matter where it is though. It becomes labor intensive to keep it clean and weed-free.

Looks great! Everyone here in Texas insists on using an edging material like chop-block, bend-a-board or metal edging. None of which really keep any grass out. I really like they way a lot of you guys run that "trench-type" edge on everything. Top notch!

Usually with no edging material that is.

Here's a nice place we did last week (maintenance)... tons of edging. We used pine straw but the property might look nicer with an alternative mulch... but they wanted to try it. I bought a bigger Dingo bucket just to deal with the edgings we produced. 1,000x easier than wheelbarrowing them into the trailer and the bucket holds a lot. Glad I got it.

And our new mower, for you grass geeks.

Came at the right time because my 36" Scag blade engage is on the fritz big time and in the shop. Probably needs new wiring and a clutch. It's old!

Thanks for the comments. River rock, love it or hate it, is a good solution with trouble areas and if you use the right size, it looks good IMO. As far as weeds, it's a breeze to spray it. And in a few years after settling and whatnot, you can easily refresh it along edges, etc...

HA!... yea I know, I find it a bit odd (or stupid??) that I really didn't look at or price any other brands. When you have to choose between Scag, Exmark, and Deere, you know you're going to get a good machine either way. And the price is going to be right in the ballpark on each, depending on how you narrow down your model choice. So I went with my gut on the dealer. These mowers have come so far in construction, features, and serviceability in the past years- it's really amazing.

Thanks- well.... there are 1.8 hours on the meter right now! Anything new is going to be tight and crisp, so it'll take some time to judge. The cut is absolutely incredible. It's faster than @#$% going down the street. very powerful and holds a hill perfectly. Love the height-of-cut control also.

The only negative so far is the noise. It's a VERY loud machine. It feels like the engine is next to your ear.

Thanks. I will let you know on the mower once I ride it a bit, this year the hours will be slow to add up. Which is fine with me. It's saving me in taxes.

The 'light materials bucket' for the Dingo is now 48" wide, taller... it's about 7 cu. ft. I think? it dwarfs the standard bucket. I'll snap a pic of it next time we're using it.
