Not much mowing to speak of with the rain. Irrigation has kept this one going pretty strong all year so far.




Some more orange






New hedge clippers, so that means 4 trimming jobs coming up. Fun Fun.

How do you tackle a lawn like this? I know multiple passes; but bag, side discharge, a mix of the two?

Work looks great,
thanks

Well, I mowed it in circles first and then just cut it again a few times at a different direction. I cut it at 3.5" so that allowed the clippings to settle down in there. It was only a small area that was like that so it wasn't a big deal to run over it 3-4 times. Funny thing is , after I cut that the drought set in and it still looked like the pic....well now it has footprints all over it ..lol

Well with new hedge trimmer comes hedge trimming. When I loaded it up this am I thought to myself " man Stihl makes a light weight hedge clipper" and by 5:30 I felt like I was wielding my chain saw around ..ugh

Only a few pictures and no "before pics" as they were not out of control other then being previously trimmed at non matching heights/sizes.
