    nah, someone else saw a pic in the "Just have to brag" post, a pic of my work and asked how do I do it, so I thought hey I'll do this it just takes a minute and is easier than explaining it (or trying to).

    Nice visual aid..but I think you are leaving some triangles of grass around the mulch beds.

    What if your 3rd pass misses the edge of the mulch bed by 1.5ft instead of just barely catching it as you pass by?

    I thought you were supposed to go completely around the (360 degrees)bed (4th pass) to make it appear as if you have striped through it, without messing up the other stripes.

    Just my thoughts.
