    I was wondering how many clean up stripes most of you do? These are the stripes you make where you turned around for you regular stripe pattern. I usually do two opposing stripes around the property, kind of like a border. Is that what you all do? If not what do you do and how? Pictures are encouraged (I love the pictures).

    It all depends on what I'm bordering.For example if I'm mowing like an island of turf that has paving around it I like my stripes to shoot straight onto the pavement.If I'm bordering someone elses property that doesn't stripe I will distinguish my work from their by using a border.

    It depends on the lawn, if I do this or not, but here is a picture of one I go around afterwards. I think it makes them look better. :)

    On a lawn like this one, just like John from cclllc said, I feel it looks better if the stripes look like they just continue on through and across the mulched areas and the driveway.
