I did, I alternate between mowing diagnally in each direction with the push mower then use the lawn tractor each time I mow.

I'd use the tractor in diagonal directions, push mowers leave pretty bad lines in my opinion! Looks good though!

Yeah, and it looks like the tractor can lay some nice stripes (I like the look of the wider stripes better also)....Real nice property though!

It can, but its not a zero turn and puts a lot of stress on the grass up around the house turning around and at the street with the ditch for the water drainage I end up cutting lower then I have the deck set and looks terrible. Almost say it goes down to 2" where I'm cutting at 3.75"

Thanks for the sugestion though but yea, tried it.

Lots of obstacles and learning curves. From herb drift to fungicide and couldn't have done it without lawnsite; I'd have done give up by now.

I've surprised even myself with the growth of this garden this year

I got green tomato's the size of baseballs



I'll have more updated pics in a couple a weeks.
