    In Texas we mow in every direction possilble to get-r-done. Mainly race/track round and round until you get to the center. Block the chute outlet so you never need to worry about throwing trash anywhere.

    ...problem is...we're big on alternate patterns to reduce compaction on the lawn...which is fine...but still...the perimeter of the lawn area still take a lot of wear and tear...I've tried to figure out a pattern that would reduce this around the perimeters of the yard but can't figure it out...

    Changing directions is good.

    What do you mean "that's how we do it to"? You don't have a mower!

    ...doesn't work...unless the area you are cutting is open allowing you to put your wheels outside the normal cutting area and allowing the wheels in the area to track between the normal route...of course most lawns are not open...diagnols...circles starting from the middle...middle horizontals...doesn't matter...at some point you are going to hit the out edge of the lawn...

    ...and don't you roll your eyes at me...:nono: ...or I'll tell your momma...:laugh:
