Looks good! The only thing that can that good at 3/4" is a Walker mower...you should sell your reel mowers.

I hope you meant that in sarcasm. I can always spot a warm season lawn mowed by a rotary by the frayed tips that make the entire lawn look whitish a day after mowing. Zoysia is especially bad for this because of the high silica content of the grass.

I know, no frayed edges next to the hardscape. Do this level of work and you are no longer in the same league of the low ball "landscaper". I will admit that it is fast and cheap to run rotary mowers, then use string to do the trim work. The results look fast and cheap as well on bermuda or zoysia.
