You must have been so excited with the stripes, you had to get a pic before you even finished. LOL Rolling the stripes will give great results. They look nice. Now edge that curb and walk and blow it off. Then take another pic.

How are you able to mow in MD. We just recieved another 5 inches of snow last night. Some of the onions are still poking through the snow. That is all that I can see of any yards around here.

Look at the PIC closely, see the trees with all the leaves in the background, no way it's even from this year!

sorry guys.. from last year. i got the idea off of this site.. basically a tube with boat trailer rollers on it... it works great but backing up can sometime be a pain in the arse.

my grass in my front year is prob 5 inches and my cub has a 5 rusted out holes in the mower deck. looking at the hustler sport to replace it and keep cub for plowing.
