You don't see the burn marks done by the mower at the end of the lawn?

If you have a sidewalk like that and the grass isnt wet you can just turnaround on the sidewalk also.

Turning around on some sidewalks causes the grass to be uneven. That is what happend in that photo. I watched the guy mow it and when he was done I took a photo of it.

Yup. It's hard to see from the photo, but I'll bet there was a sharp drop from the turf level to the sidewalk. That would explain the blade burns at the end of every line. Mowers with extended wheels (as opposed to consumer-type push mowers with wheels on the deck) help eliminate this problem. I've got a 26" stanley with out-front castered wheels that is a lot harder to scalp with. It's like a mower with "training wheels".

Looks like it could be a bent blade. You dont know if they were sharp or not. Look under the deck.

alpine692003, I suggest you go work for someone for a year or two, and get some experience.

No offense, But the questions you are asking tells me that you are not qualified to give the customer the service they deserve from a proffesional Lawn care company. Please don't take this the wrong way, I'm not trying to flame you.
