any advice on cleaning up my diagonal stripes. Perimeter is the problem.

    I tend to do one perimeter cut and then begin my diagnonals. But when I am done you can see all my turns at the end. Is there a better way or just redo the perimeter shot? Thanks

    When finished, do a perimeter cut.

    I do one more perimeter cut when I am finished too.

    This is difficult and cumbersome to do if the area has square curbs, but so long the curbs are those shallow curbed ones or non-existent, I make my turns off-turf and then it's stripes from one end to the other... You have to watch your blades, since I have a light front end it is nothing to lift the blades into the air and also you will get some grass onto paved surfaces.
