    Richard is that your own lawn? What kind of trees are those?
    Very nice work and beautiful pics!

    Yes, that's my lawn last year. Like I said above, the weather hasn't been as good this year so the lawn isn't as nice. Those are Bradford Pear trees. They are very susceptible to wind damage and both of them sustained considerable amounts of damage the year before from a hurricane. When a healthy thunderstorm came through last year it finished them off and they are both gone now.

    Not gonna win any contest with these, but here's a couple from last year of my own yard. This was during the middle of that summer long drought we had last year. We are just getting started this week here this year, so no pics yet. We're a full 5 weeks behind last year at this time.

    Do you have any from any JD lawn tractor's. That will fire some people up!Those must be from your ZTR. If this is still up next week I'm going to throw up a picture from an "X" Select Series. Things are just starting to green up and fill in where I'm from.

    LOL, I thought about doing just that when I posted the ones above to show that Z's aren't the only machines that can stripe. Those above were done with my Z950 MOD, no striper kit. Since you asked, these were done with a 23 year old JD 240 garden tractor with a rather ordinary 46" tunnel deck-

    Outstanding ! I still think a quality, not box store, good JD riding tractor still can serve a valuable purpose.

    I have done a lot better with it than that, but I don't have any pics of them. I never used to think about taking pics of them. As long as the customer was happy, that was enough for me. Dumb of me, I know.:hammerhead:
